Rescue a Reef

aa

The University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School's coral conservation program designed to build community and coastal resilience through coral reef research, restoration, and citizen science.

aa

Our UM research lab uses strong, science-based techniques to grow threatened coral species in underwater nurseries to create a sustainable source of healthy coral colonies for use in active reef restoration.

aa

Rescue a Reef hosts field expeditions led by our UM coral researchers that provide a unique, hands-on educational opportunity for recreational SCUBA divers and snorkelers from the community to participate directly in coral restoration efforts.

Through these citizen science expeditions, participants learn about the critical role coral reefs play in our environment and economy, the threats they face, and the tools available for their conservation and restoration; all the while conducting real-world coral research.
