The Miami Dade Reef Guard Association was set up at the end of 2009 in response to the Florida Coral Reef Protection act. Florida's Coral Reef Protection Act went into effect on July 1, 2009.

The law increases protection of Florida's endangered coral reefs by raising awareness of the damages associated with vessel groundings and anchoring on coral reefs.

The law affects all vessels (commercial and recreational) that transit state waters within Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Martin counties, and holds those that injure reefs responsible for causing damage to, or destruction of, coral reefs.

As a result and in cooperation with Miami Dade department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, 42 mooring buoys were installed along the reefs adjacent to Miami Dade County. Maintenance for these buoys costs about $20,000 a year. Until 2015 this has been funded by donations to Reef Guard and grants from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Unfortunately the level of donations to Reef Guard has not been sufficient to support the annual maintenance costs and some of the 42 buoys are no longer in service.

While we continue to collect donations it is now time for Miami Dade County to properly fund and budget for the annual costs of the mooring buoys. We invite all friends of our coral reefs, boaters, divers and fishermen to contact their Miami Dade County Commissioner and request that the cost of the mooring buoy program be included in the annual budget.
