Disney is calling their effort to restore and save Florida’s Coral Reef, “Rescue Under the Sea”.
Thanks to Disney’s Conservation efforts, parts of Florida’s Coral Reef are undergoing a restoration process to help save 22 coral species that have faced extinction. The Disney Parks Blog documented the efforts in a new blog post and YouTube video. Let’s take a look:
The Disney Parks Blog post also added:
” Did you know the future of Florida’s coral reefs may rely on care from the heart of Central Florida? For the past year, a dedicated team of Disney aquatic wildlife experts and conservationists have been working on a special mission to help save Florida’s coral reefs from the rapid spread of stony coral tissue loss disease, which has put 22 coral species at risk of extinction.
By joining forces with the Association of Zoos & Aquariums, and the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, NOAA Fisheries, and SeaWorld, we’ve been able to establish the Florida Coral Rescue Center in Orlando, the largest facility of its kind in the U.S. to care for and safeguard some of the most vulnerable species of Florida coral.”
