What is RSS?
RSS news feeds (which stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary depending on whom you ask) are a way for us to allow you to subscribe to specific sections of our website and be notified when updates occur in these areas. Various places you might find these news feed icons in our website are website News and our Reefs in the News article.
If you want to see a listing of each article that has just been published, our Latest Published Articles feed is the one you will want to subscribe to in your news aggregator. This feed will update monthly and will show each article that has just been published on the website. No more subscribing to mailing lists. :)
By subscribing to our News section with your news reader, you can be kept up-to-date on the latest things happening here. This would include notification of special information regarding updates to the website. This keeps you up-to-date on anything new we add to areas you want to keep abreast of without receiving emails from us. However, if you would prefer to receive email notifications from us instead, please subscribe to our website newsletter by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By subscribing to our Reefs in the News article with your news aggregator, you will receive anywhere from 1-6 interesting links per day that link to published news articles that deal with various marine topics.
