At a Glance

Celebrate Earth Day by diving under the waves and discovering the innovative science behind Mote Marine Laboratory's Coral Reef Restoration Program. Florida's Coral Reef has lost all but 2% of its living coral cover in recent decades, but Mote scientists are developing and applying science-based strategies with the aim of reviving these depleted reefs in our lifetime. Explore the groundbreaking research that has already rejuvenated 100,000 corals in these vulnerable ecosystems. Led by Jason Robertshaw, Program Manager for Virtual Learning at Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, you’ll discover how you can join the effort to safeguard our reefs from the threats of climate change, disease and overfishing.
