    Yes. Yesterday was the first time nursery-cultivated elkhorn, from the nursery near Snapper Ledge, has been planted on the reef.
    So they will be doing both staghorn and elkhorn from now on.

    Milestone for coral restoration.

    That's awesome! Can't wait to go out and help again. This is such a fun and enriching dive activity. If anyone is coming to Key Largo, contact CRF to get involved.

    Awesome progress! I was aware of the Success of the Staghorn but did not know about the Elkhorn. Good job!
