PFL champion Kayla Harrison joins coastal conservation effort to help preserve and restore Florida’s coral reef
PFL defending women’s lightweight champion Kayla Harrison is lending a hand to help preserve Florida’s coral reef.
Harrison will join 30 former Marine divers and 50 recreational divers to survey the coral reefs along the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea as part of Pepsi Stronger Together and Force Blue’s Costal Conversation Ops summer tour.
The PFL is also chipping in $10,000 USD to support the tour.
“We are proud to join Force Blue, Pepsi Stronger Together and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in their fight to preserve and restore Florida’s Coral Reef,” PFL CEO Peter Murray said in a press release.
Force Blue is a non-profit organization that retrains and redeploys former Special Operations veterans and military-trained combat divers, to assist in marine and coral reef conservation efforts in South Florida where PFL is currently hosting its 2021 Playoffs. This includes a coral spawning recon offshore Key Biscayne, FL, as well as a coastal conservation beach cleanup operation at Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
