  • Description:
    Over 12,500 corals were outplanted from coral nurseries in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands during 2015/16. Corals were transplanted to over 30 sites across the region (Figure 1). Over the past 10 years, nursery operations have expanded exponentially from just two nurseries in Culebra to 16 nurseries across the region with over 12,000 corals in the nurseries across the region. The locations of the nurseries are located on the map in Figure 1 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, Vegabajeños Impulsando Desarrollo Ambiental Sustentable (VIDAS), and the University of Puerto Rico.
