ISLAMORADA, Fla. (AP) - Scientists are set to undertake work to try and restore coral reefs in the Florida Keys.
Nursery corals are to be transplanted on the badly degraded Davis Reef near Islamorada.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute scientist Bill Sharp says the work done on Davis Reef could help scientists better understand how nursery-raised coral can help damaged natural coral.
Scientists are also hoping the work will help bring back the long-spined sea urchin.
