MarineLab staff celebrated World Oceans Day in style this year by participating in Coral Restoration Foundation’s first annual Plantapalooza. CRF set the lofty goal of planting 1,000 corals in one day off of the Upper Keys, something CRF has never done before. The goal was exceeded with 1,600 corals being planted in celebration of Mother Ocean. In the morning, we went out to the Elbow nursery to prepare staghorn corals for outplanting. We spent the afternoon underwater- MarineLab staff helped to plant over 400 corals at Grecian Rocks! It was a long, exhausting day but we were so happy to be a part of an event that helps to restore our reefs and brings so much awareness to the habitat we all love so much.
