Coral Restoration Foundation event at IceCapPosted on Monday, April 19th, 2010 at 8:14 pm by Reef Tools
The NJ Reefers Club and IceCap are holding a special day of conservation event on May 23rd, 2010. The guest speaker will be Ken Nedimyer, President of the Coral Restoration Foundation Inc, a non profit company which focuses on developing simple, effective, and inexpensive coral nursery and restoration techniques. CRF’s nursery has grown from just 5 corals in 1996, to over 4000 in march of 2009, and is projected to rise to over 7000 by the spring of 2010. CRF’s efforts and vision have led the way in growing the coastal conservation movement in the Florida Keys, as well as inspiring neighboring countries to critically assess their own marine and coastal conservation challenges.
The NJ Reefers club has donated $1500 to the Coral Restoration Foundation. Way to go!
