Friends of the Environment received a generous donation from members of the Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club on March 24 to assist with their Mermaid Reef Sign Project.

Olivia Patterson Maura, FRIENDS program coordinator, gave a brief tour of the Frank Kenyon Centre for Research, Education and Conservation to Commodore Woody Sutton and Susan Harward, both members of the yacht club.

Harward explained that FRIENDS had made an application requesting assistance for the project, and the yacht club responded based on its bylaws to make donations to boating initiatives.

The funds will assist with the development of the sign along with maintenance of the moorings.

Patterson Maura explained that they had struggled with the sign at Mermaid Reef previously because it would not stay put therefore their messages of not fishing and not using the moorings to protect the reef were lost.

The plan is to put in pilings to erect the sign on, so that everyone who visits the location will now be able to see the message on the importance of Mermaid Reef.

According to Harward, donations were also made to FRIENDS as well as BASRA in previous years on behalf of the Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club.
