PROCESS

our process

The Reef Renewal USA team’s combined experience makes our organization uniquely suited to spearhead new techniques in reef restoration. We take innovative action in search of the most sustainable, effective, and expeditious methods to repopulate our reef.

Our methods are always evolving, but the overall procedure remains the same. We work with several species of coral, especially those which have experienced the greatest population losses in recent years. Using specimens chosen from the wild, we propagate coral in our nurseries and outplant it back to the reef. 

We rely on the expertise of our team, and the dedication of our community, to improve the future of the coral reef in the Florida Keys. 

innovation

We pride ourselves on our ever evolving, innovative techniques. We develop varying methods suited for the many different coral species with which we work.
