JBL again supporting the reforestation of Caribbean reefs

Thanks in part to JBL's financial support, the CRF (Coral Restoration Foundation) in Florida was able to carry out the largest coral planting campaign in history in June 2021. For the first time, digital channels with 1,400 activists in 34 countries were also used to follow and publicise the action. With the help of volunteer activists, in just one day alone, during seven dives, 340 staghorn corals (Acropora cervicornis) were introduced to damaged sections of the reef.

Climate change has meant the problem of increasingly strong hurricanes is still there, with increasing tendency. The storms are now so strong that their wave troughs are ripping corals out of the reefs at a depth of 11 metres. The CRF "grows" coral fragments into small coral branches on racks underwater and then sticks them into the reef. The JBL research team has documented this work live underwater and will continue to support the fantastic work of the CRF!
