Coral Restoration Foundation™ (CRF) is the world's largest non-profit marine-conservation organization dedicated to restoring coral reefs to a healthy state, in Florida and globally.
CRF developed a method for “farming” and “outplanting” colonies of staghorn and elkhorn.
By hanging finger-sized fragments of these corals to grow on Coral Trees™, [they] can produce colonies that are large enough to be outplanted in just six to nine months.
To date, [they] have now planted more than 66,000 corals back onto the Florida Reef Tract!!
