A look at Coral Restoration Foundation’s wins for coral reefs; Ken Stewart earns the title of Scuba Diving’s Sea Hero of the Year; how to ID mountainous star coral; a new release for nudibranch nerds; and a dip in the water with the world’s oldest married
From a tiny acorn, a mighty oak might grow — the same could be said of Coral Restoration Foundation, based in Key Largo, Florida. Sprung from an idea that came out of a father-daughter 4-H project in 2001, CRF today has inspired and assisted coral-restoration projects across the Caribbean and beyond. Today CRF is “banking” genetically diverse corals, preserving diversity to ensure that the reefs they are restoring will be resilient enough to face the challenges of the future. Want to plant some corals for yourself? CRF encourages diver participation. Learn more at coralrestoration.org.
