Brooksville, FL, January 22, 2010 --( Reef Relief founders Craig and DeeVon Quirolo retired from the grassroots organization last July, only to begin an effort to provide an online resource on coral reefs. Their new website provides all the award-winning educational tools, grassroots strategies, project reports and images of coral reefs assembled during their work over the past 23 years in the Florida Keys and throughout the Caribbean protecting coral reefs. You can find it at

“We just wanted to insure that others can learn from our experiences and continue the important work of saving endangered coral reefs,” noted DeeVon. “Craig’s image archive from all the years he monitored coral reefs, especially those revealing new coral diseases, are invaluable to researchers, students, media, divers and the general public to learn about coral reefs. We hope to inspire a new generation of sea fans!”

The Quirolos new website features blogs on reef news, science and even offshore oil, along with over 10,000 free images of coral reefs from coral surveys in the Florida Keys, Jamaica, Cuba, Bahamas and elsewhere. Craig Quirolo has produced numerous reef videos on the Youtube site accessible from the webpage. So check it out, make it a favorite and return often to see new posts and add a link from your site to this new resource for saving endangered coral reefs. For more information, email or go to
