February 22nd: Mote Marine Lab (MML)’s team of dozens of local scientists and staff have used their own research and collaborations to master the mass production of coral in accessible land nurseries, as well as ocean-based field nurseries dotted across the Florida Keys. Sarah Hamlyn, a Senior Biologist for MML, oversees Mote’s Coral Restoration operations in the Upper Keys. She will give a snapshot of Mote science-based restoration and how they have “planted” over 185,00 genetically diverse corals to Florida’s Reef Tract, including those that are now reproducing naturally.
