Last week we had our first graduates of the Eyes of the Reef (EOR) verification training program!! This advanced EOR training will help verify reports that are received through the EOR online report system.  Their efforts will help scientists and managers understand the extent and severity of unusual coral disease, bleaching, and Crown-Of-Thorn-Starfish (COTS) events.

Congratulations and many thanks to all of the individuals who completed the program!!
