The Race to save our Coral Reefs; A story of determination and hope.

As we come together to celebrate Earth Day 2024, we are In our race to preserve the vibrant diversity of our planet’s ecosystems, and few regions are as urgent and vital as Florida’s Coral Reefs. Coral reefs cover less than 1% of the ocean floor but support about 25% of marine life. However, coral reefs around the world are declining due to climate change—including increasing temperatures and ocean acidification—along with coral disease, pollution, overfishing and other stressors . Join Dr. Erinn Muller, Mote’s Associate Vice President for Research, Senior Scientist and Program Manager for Coral Health & Disease for a deep dive into Mote’s groundbreaking research, rescue, and restoration programs as they endeavor to protect and save these invaluable natural wonders. This is a race that involves us all. By amplifying awareness and inspiring action, we are not only fighting for these reefs but also for the health and sustainability of our planet as a whole.
