Christoper Page is a restoration senior scientist working with Dr. David Vaughan and the MOTE Tropical Research Laboratory in Summerland Key, Florida ( He'll be discussing their techniques and efforts to
grow and repopulate native corals on Florida Reefs. Their techniques have allowed them to propagate coral "microfragments" at more than 25 times their normal growth rate. This is allowing them to focus on re-implanting the reef with traditionally slow growing large reef corals. Their success with propagation currently allows them to grow corals faster than they can get permission to place them.
