The Coral Nursery Initiative



Project Name

The Coral Nursery Initiative

Project Description

Our goal is to grow enough corals in our nursery to outplant thousands of coral fragments per year back to South Florida reefs so that they may continue to grow, spawn, and help in replenishing the existing Staghorn population. As a branching coral, Staghorn grows quickly, building reef structure and providing shelter/habitat for many reef fish and critters. As part of this project, we will continue to study the survivorship and health of our nursery and outplanted corals, along with the best way to grow corals in a nursery. We will also study the changes in reef fish communities surrounding our newly outplanted corals as we assist in the recovery of Staghorn coral and overall restoration of local reefs.
