In 2022 we already started training new participants in reef monitoring techniques following the Atlantic and Gulf Rapid Reef Assessment Protocol. Getting them to fine tune their diving skills and learning about the reef ecosystem, the interaction with other ecosystems and the different species that inhibit them. We have already collected data on the health of the reef and shared it with our differente partners so they can use it to determine proper paths to follow for the conservation of the reef.
With four years already under the bridge since the start of the coral restoration project, doing coral cloning through coral fragmentation and assisted fertilization. So far we have only been able to reach 35% advance on our objectives. Having generated and relocated in the reef 79.5 thousand coral so far, one third of our total objective of 265 thousand corals by 2022. A big challenge but something we are sure can be done, needs to be done to be able to give another huge step in the conservation of the magnificent coral reef ecosystems. We are proud to announce that through your generous donations we are currently in the process of expanding our Coral Lab to increase the scope and reach of our work. As always with the huge help from your support, GRACIAS!!!!!!
