Healing Reefs and Wounded Vets

In July, 2015, and for the fourth year, Mote Marine Laboratories will host an underwater event that brings together marine scientists from Mote, teen scuba team Aquanauts, and combat wounded veterans in a unique collaboration aimed at restoring Florida’s ailing coral reefs. Working at Mote’s coral restoration lab in the Florida Keys, this group will transplant staghorn coral frags, and, in the process forge relationships and build life skills. To read a report from last summer’s dive, go to Mote’s website at Restoration and Remembrance. To view a beautiful and inspiring video shot at the 2014 dive, go here.
