One at a Time
90% of staghorn and elkhorn coral has been lost on US and Caribbean Coral reefs. Crew 3000 is actively participating in restoring the coral reef system, helping to create and maintain offshore coral nurseries and performing other restoration techniques. Selected corals from the nurseries have been, and will continue to be, transplanted onto a variety of degraded reef areas throughout the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and other Caribbean reefs. By strategically replanting corals onto the reef in genetically diverse clusters, we envision enhancing reproductive output, which can potentially re-seed downstream reefs and lead to a natural recovery throughout coral reef system.
