Joel Biddle was the most passionate, knowledgeable reef educator Reef Relief ever had and he served as the Educational Coordinator for about 10 years. His early childhood experiences in Bermuda taught him all about coral reefs. Joel created the Discover Coral Reefs School Program, turning our short presentations into a full scale program that incorporated multi-media, field trips, educational videos, printed materials, activity sessions, role playing, and of course, lots of learning from Joel about the magical coral reefs for every 4th grade student in the Florida Keys and many special groups each year. His Marine Debris Timeline continues to serve a vital role in the increased awareness and elimination of marine debris. The Dive Back in Time video he produced along with Craig Quirolo is an outstanding learning experience and is available on our youtube site. (Go to home page here and click on videos). Joel will always be among our finest friends. Check out his latest site: http://web.mac.com/waterofwonder/watersofwonder/Home.html
