Reef Ball Coalition - Dominica

Description: World Record Freediver Tanya Streeter will be joining other ocean lovers on  a 1 week trip to Dominica to help build a Reef Ball artificial reef during EARTH DAY, April 22, 2000. The excursion, April 18th to the 25th is being offered by the Reef Ball Coalition to all divers and non-divers, essentially anyone looking for a great vacation while  tangibly leaving the ocean abetter place.Tanya Streeter is a 4 time World Record holder and will be inducted into the Woman Divers Hall of Fame at the “Beneath the Sea 2000 Show” on March 25th in Secaucus, New Jersey. Tanya’s records are:
WORLD Women’s No Limits to 370 feet set on May 9th, 1998 in Grand Cayman

Tanya has always been extremely aware of the need to educate the populace about ocean ethics, conservation and preservation and is frequently invited to use her popularity to bring awareness to various conservation groups and 
their efforts. “As a lifelong waterbaby and more recently a world record freediver I have often seen first hand cases of devastating reef damage and I believe that the Reef Ball groups work to repair, restore and create reefs around the world is extremely valuable to our ecosystem.” What better way to promote good ocean ethics than by helping build a reef on EARTH DAY.Participants will enjoy a week in the Caribbean with Tanya Streeter and other ocean lovers that includes plenty of time for snorkeling, diving, kayaking, whale watching and of course, building and deploying Reef Balls for an artificial reef. Land package prices start at $1,099. for non-divers and $1,239. for divers.
