Dear colleagues,
The Foundation ICRI Colombia completed a Virtual Coral Reef Exhibit with
photos and videos of Colombian Coral Reefs held between the 5th of November
and the 5th of December Called in Spanish #MesDelArrecife. The last day
under the celebration of the National Day of the Reef #DiaDelArrecife
started in 2008 the International Year of The Reef IYOR.
The winner video can be watched
The objectives were reached and the Governmental Institutions responsible to
improvecoral reef management effectiveness paid attention and acted
positively to streamline the necessary formalities about:
NEW #ÁreaMarinaProtegidaArrecifesCapurganáCaboTiburón
#ReglamentaciónPesqueraPezLeón MADS            #MediciónMercurioPezLeón 
We have receive requests from divers from other countries to particiapte in
the next #MesDelArrecife 2015 and already receiving your videos, photos and
artistic representations related to coral reefs. 
* Because it is necessary to evidence the state of coral reefs. * Because it
is relevant to multiply knowledge on how to improve the effectiveness of
reef management* Because communities of artisanal fishermen and tourist
operators are reporting their daily observations to inform the decision
makers* Because by coral reef protection there is less pollution, less coral
destruction and less overfishing* Because we need to remind the developers
that true sustainable development is the protection of our ecosystems and
ecotourism. Thus, future generations can enjoy what we inherit them.
