Thanks for your interest in REEF Fish & Friends! We are pleased to welcome our March 2023 speaker, Dr. Andy Bruckner, Research Coordinator for NOAA at Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

Andrew Bruckner is a coral reef ecologist working to understand stressors affecting coral reefs while identifying ways to address these challenges. He began his initial research in Jamaica in the 1980s, and since then he has conducted research on reefs worldwide. Andy will discuss his work, including the holistic approach to reef restoration in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
