  • Description:
    Over 16,000 corals were outplanted from coral nurseries in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands during 2014/15. Corals were transplanted to over 30 sites across the region (Figure 1). Over the past 5 years, nursery operations have expanded exponentially from just two nurseries in Culebra to 11 nurseries across the region. The number of corals in nursery increased from 14,000 in 2013/14 to over 17,000 in 2014/15. The locations of the nurseries are located on the map in Figure 2 and a description of each can be found in Appendix I & II. Funding for this work was provided from NOAA's Restoration Center, Coral Reef Conservation Program, and Protected Resources Division in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy, Sociedad Ambiente Marino, HJR Reefscaping, Sea Ventures, Vegabajenos Impulsando Desarrollo Ambiental Sustentable (VIDAS), University of Puerto Rico, and the Gulf of Mexico Foundation.
