Letter from Coral Restoration Director

Hi Don
I am the new Operations Manager and Stephanie Roach is our new Field Biologist. We are excited about working with your group to help volunteer with our coral nursery and on restoration/monitoring work.

Our ideal weekend would involve class work Sat AM with nursery work (2 tanks) in the afternoon. Sun AM class work covering restoration, then restoration transplanting at Molasses Reef (2 tanks) in the afternoon.

We do have some corals to monitor at many other sites such as Alligator Reef, but are presently gearing up for 1200 corals for Molasses.

I actually live in Vero Beach and will be down here every other week for the coming months. If you would like to discuss next week while I am in Vero, I would be happy to meet with you.

Kevin Gaines, Director
