The Coral Restoration Foundation is doing important and amazing work in the Caribbean and doing so with strong support from the marine-aquarium hobby. This week we welcome Foundation president Ken Nedimyer and returning guest Richard Ross of the Steinhart Aquarium to talk about the Foundation’s work and a recent dive trip during a coral spawn. It’s an exciting and interesting podcast and the Coral Restoration Foundation is something all hobbyists should support with money or by traveling to Florida to help do the work. Download the podcast here, or subscribe to our podcasts at iTunes.
