Reef Patrol’s Vanessa Cara Kerr and SECORE make a great team. They have now released multiple video projects in partnership with each other. When it comes to telling the story of attempting to restore reefs through sexual coral reproduction efforts, the latest SECORE video trailer makes the topic just about as exciting and suspenseful as one could!

Cara Kerr couldn’t be specific, but she suggested that a longer video on SECORE’s efforts in Mexico, working with Acropora palmata, would be forthcoming. She noted that further information is available in this recent news release on the SECORE website.

Additionally, SECORE’s Project Mexico pages offer further insights and backgrounds into the coral research being conducted, with the ultimate goal of using sexual coral reproduction for reef restoration in that region.
