Coral Nurseries from Sea Base to Caribbean


Recommended Posts

Through Plant a Million Corals, Dr. David Vaughan has developed a way to place small-scale coral nurseries in neighboring Caribbean countries.

Those nurseries – modeled after the one he helped establish at the Boy Scouts of America Florida National High Adventure Sea Base on Summerland Key – can eventually produce 10,000 corals a year through microfragmentation.

...

Vaughan, who puts in some hands-on time at Sea Base, sees the legacy the Scout program can create.

“Could you imagine talking to a Scout 25 years from now and saying, “We’re going to take you to the 2020 planting and see what your father planted?’”

“Active Coral Restoration: Techniques for a Changing Planet” is a guidebook edited by Dr. David Vaughan that was released through J. Ross Publishing in April. The book is a product of 72 scientists and contributing authors.
