New Video: How to Grow Coral Babies on Curaçao
On Curaçao, Dr. Valérie Chamberland studies coral reproduction and related topics and how to translate these findings into protocols and methods for coral restoration. As a complement, Kelly Latijnhouwers implements the actual coral restoration on pilot sites and takes part in developing the tools―the technology―for a sustainable large-scale application. Together they form a most effective team on that beautiful island!
Valérie and Kelly are based at the Carmabi Marine Research Station and work together with the Curaçao SeaAquarium, both are SECORE'S long-term partners on the island. Together, we share the gained knowledge in up to three training workshops a year, which are additionally joined by collaborating scientists and are supported by volunteers of our Aquarium Partners, such as the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, and the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center.
Take a look yourself and learn more about the fascinating and challenging work that happens right in the heart of the Caribbean!
