Area Description: Project Baseline Nionplas asking local divers to observe water quality (and changes therein) of Nionplas and then register thier observations. Divers can share thier previously collected (for personal use) pictures, video and diving 'logs' for storage in the database provided. They will also be encouraged to participate in the measurement of specific underwater structures such as current and temperature according to our team standards. 

Collaborators: Stichting Ravon Our team coordinates with an organization called Stichting Ravon on the Lota Lota project. The Lota Lota is a burbot that is nearly extinct in The Netherlands. We aim to find the last few and are together searching for his/her breeding grounds. For clients RAVON provides advice, information and conducts research for cold-blooded vertebrates (reptiles, amphibians and fish). Additionally RAVON collects population data and we are responsible for the organization of national networks and the diffusion research, where thousands of volunteers are involved.

Project Baseline has been at the forefront of increasing awareness of Florida reef decline as well as monitoring the health index for nearly 70 marine and freshwater environments world-wide since 2009. Watch as Project Baseline takes CNN underwater for special media coverage on Florida reefs -
