This one surprised me: there is a way to regenerate coral reefs.
You can see it at the
Wild & Scenic Film Festival, 7PM, Thursday, May 31, 2018, in Valdosta, GA.
An upbeat look at a downbeat topic, coral reefs are home to 25% of
all marine species and protect the coastlines of more than 100
countries and provide 500 million people with jobs. They are also
taking a huge hit from climate change, ocean acidification, and
other pressures. The Mote Tropical Research Lab and the Coral
Restoration Foundation’s ground breaking work with accelerating
coral growth in the lab, creating nurseries in the ocean, and
replanting back to the reefs is nothing less than fantastic. Their
efforts creates hope for the future of sustainable coral reefs
around the globe.
