Threatened Coral Get Second Chance in South Florida

By Ambar Corporan Coral reefs are impacted worldwide by a host of natural and human-induced factors. Natural and man-made climatic variations, including those from El Niño, heat, stress, and hurricane forces cause substantial damage to coral reefs. Staghorn coral planted by Nova Sotheastern University in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea a year ago.
