Hello everybody,

My name is Sophie Brugneaux, and I work for the direction of environment
in Martinique (French west Indies). We have a tremendous lack of basic
information about our reeves and, because of growing human activities, we
need in some ways to follow their health.  Therefore, I=92ve recently been
charged to set up a long term reef monitoring program.  Locally our chance
is to have a nice volunteer pod but we don=92t have any permanent
scientist or tropical marine biology specialist. I found several survey
protocols on the web (Reefcheck, AGRAA, GCRMN), and I would like to know
if such experiment is actually implemented in the Caribbean and which
method is used.

Thanks for your help
