Michael Blatus was one of Vero Beach's top
advocates of keeping our off shore coral reefs save and
intact. The Coral reef laced with it's amazing beauty is the
home of millions of sea life dependant on the reefs for survival.
Michael was always in front of our city counsel
making sure they knew what steps were needed to preserve the
natural beauty and ecosystem of our Vero Beach Reefs.
Mike and many of his friends and collegues brought
an awareness like no other to the needs of our neighbors to the east,
the ecosystem called VeroBeachReefs! All the photographs in
verobeachreefs.org were taken by Michael under water with a disposible
camera. Mike's dream was that the people of Florida would see
just how close all this amazing underwater life is to the coast line.
A mere few hundred feet off Vero's Beach is where these two
Florida Lobsters were caught!
