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.
