Earthwatch Institute: Helping Endangered Corals in Little Cayman

Boston, MA

Overview

At Earthwatch Institute's HELPING ENDANGERED CORALS IN LITTLE CAYMAN you will snorkel off this remote island, surveying the types of coral growing in specific locations and the environmental conditions that support coral the best. 

You’ll also learn about, and observe scientists working in a shallow ocean “nursery,” where researchers are practicing coral gardening: growing new coral from fragments taken from the reef, then replanting those baby corals into the wild to boost reef recovery.
