Adopting a Buoy

Want to help the Miami-Dade County Mooring Buoy Program? Adopt a buoy!

Individuals, groups and corporations can help protect natural and artificial reefs from anchor damage by making donations to help fund the installation and ongoing maintenance of the mooring buoys.

Donate to the Miami-Dade Adopt-a-Buoy program through our reef partner, the Miami-Dade Reef Guard Association. Your contribution will help save 48 miles of Miami-Dade County coral reefs.

There are several levels of contribution:

 Coral Reef ambassador

Coral Reef Ambassador - Donation of $3,000 and up
Your donation will pay for one year of maintenance for multiple mooring buoys. Consider sponsoring an entire mooring buoy site. The number of buoys differs between sites -- from two buoys ($3,000) to seven buoys ($10,500)
