About Our Summerland Key Lab

Mote’s Elizabeth Moore International Center for Coral Reef Research & Restoration (IC2R3) is 19,000 square feet of research, education, offices, and dormitories, on almost an acre of Lower Florida Keys canal-side property. More than 300 feet of dock space and 120 feet of mangrove-fringed shoreline provide space for resident and visiting research support vessels. IC2R3 provides a base of operations for Mote’s ongoing research and education programs in the Florida Keys, and it is also open to visiting collaborative marine research or collaborative marine education groups.
