World-renowned authors/photographers, Ned and Anna DeLoach, will host a one-of-a-kind trip for underwater naturalists, centering around Key Largo’s annual Coral Spawning event in late August. In addition to slide and video presentations about marine life spawning behavior, the couple will lead a week of diving with emphasis on the nights that corals are most likely to spawn. Laurie MacLaughlin, Resource Manager from the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, will update us about her ongoing coral spawning research and describe coral spawn collecting methods. Ken Nedimyer, founder of the Coral Restoration Foundation, will speak about growing coral for restoring reefs and will escort the group to his famous coral nursery, where participants will have the opportunity for hands-on work. Day dives will provide the opportunity to hone fishwatching and survey skills and a special dusk dive is scheduled to observe fish spawning behavior. A rare opportunity for anyone who loves nature.
Trip purpose – Learn about marine life behaviors, coral restoration and observe coral spawning event.
