ELKHORN CORAL FRAGMENT REATTACHENT - BROKEN CORAL

 On June 11, 2008 Dan Clark while conducting a site inspection discovered a fragment broken off our elkhorn colony. Local group Vŏnē Research, is experienced in coral reattachment, agreed to work with us to apply for the needed permit from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and on July 17, 2008 our team worked to re-attached and photographed the project. Both the fragment and the colony showed signs of white spots on the coral surface. Within 2 days the white spots increased in size.

RAPID RESPONSE TO CORAL DISEASE

  During the 2 week site inspection on July 26, 2008 Dr. Ester Peters using an FWCC permit collected mucus, water and sediment samples on and around the reattachment site for use in disease identification. Dan Clark assisted Ester on this dive.


 Monitoring will be conducted as often as possible during the disease outbreak to document the rapid deterioration of the colony. Permit conditions requires monitoring in six months, one year and two years from the re-attachment date.
