Coral Reef Restoration in South Florida


Can we save our beautiful and important coral reefs?  Madeline Kaufman and Olivia Williamson from the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science will talk about our coral reefs and what is being done to restore them. #Rescueareef is a fascinating research project and hands-on effort to save our coral reefs from the damage caused by several factors including climate change.

Coral reefs lay the foundation of a dynamic ecosystem with tremendous biodiversity. Florida's Coral Reef stretches approximately 360 linear miles from Dry Tortugas National Park west of the Florida Keys to the St. Lucie Inlet in Martin County.

Florida's Corals Are Dying Off, But It's Not All Due To Climate Change. Study Says Elevated nutrients as well as elevated temperatures are causing a massive loss of this iconic branching species in Florida.
