Often referred to as “rainforests of the sea,” coral reefs are teeming with marine life. Globally, coral reefs cover less than 1% of the ocean floor yet they support more than 25% of all marine life, serving as a haven for biodiversity.
Florida’s Coral Reef stretches 360 miles from the Dry Tortugas at the southern tip of the Florida Keys to the St. Lucie Inlet on Florida’s east coast and offers vital protection to coastal communities by absorbing potentially-lethal storm surges during tropical weather events and hurricanes. Unfortunately, only 2% of Florida’s Coral Reef currently supports living coral, and those corals that do remain are struggling to survive amid growing environmental pressures. Fortunately, there is hope. Mote scientists are using scientific knowledge and restoration expertise to reverse historic population decline among corals and to sustainably restore Florida’s Coral Reef for the long term.
