Here’s a little distraction from your Sunday night football games. Coral restoration and conservation is a huge passion of ours, and should be of every saltwater aquarium keeper, so it should come as no surprise that we’re plugging the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF). In the video above, the guys at EcoTech Marine are also joining in on the conservation efforts by going out on a little coral planting trip to Molasses Reef in the Florida Keys. They spend the day fragging and transplanting up to 60 of the highly endangered Elkhorn (Acropora palmata) and Staghorn corals (A. cervicornis).
We highly applaud these efforts and encourage everyone to look into the Coral Restoration Foundation to see how they can help. They focus primarily on Elkhorn and Staghorn restoration, but their efforts aren’t limited to just those.
