Key Largo is a great place to live. It's the American Caribbean. I moved here in August 2009 and have the privilege to work and play in the diving capital of the world.
In 2010 I won the John Pennekamp 50th Anniversary Photo Contest, and that led to a gig as the scuba diving columnist for the local paper, The Reporter, for over 3 years.
It also led to a direct involvement with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary as a member of the Ecosystem Protection Working Group and as an Alternate member of the FKNMS Advisory Council.
One of my favorite groups to work with here is the Coral Restoration Foundation. Please check it out to see the critically important work CRF is doing to protect and preserve the reefs in the the Florida Keys.
