Transplant Nursery-Grown Coral to Reef

Date: 16/09/2013

Father and daughter Steve and Caroline Smith transplanted healthy underwater nursery-grown coral
to natural coral reef sites in the Florida Keys. They joined with the Coral Restoration Foundation which has the only underwater coral nursery on the east coast, growing staghorn and elkhorn coral. The coral reproduce sexually and asexually, so broken pieces can continue to grow. A pollination period happens annually for a few nights in August.
