Volunteers Vs. Invasives

One sentence in particular caught  my eye when reading this environmental volunteer story: “REEF volunteers armed with filleting knives sliced up the carcasses, carefully avoiding the fish’s venomous spines.”

How can you read that and not want to see what these volunteers are up to? In this case, they are working along with the Reef Environmental Education Foundation to reduce populations of invasive lionfish. Check out the story, courtesy of National Geographic, to see just how successful all that knife-wielding volunteer work has been.
