Amid Climate Change, Florida Scientist Works To Grow Heat-Resistant Coral

SUMMERLAND KEY, FLORIDA - JULY 14: Chloe Spring, a coral restoration technician, works on the coral being grown in a tank at the Plant a Million Corals Foundation farm on July 14, 2023 in Summerland Key, Florida. Dr. David Vaughan, who founded the farm, hopes to grow coral that can live in the ocean waters that have reached unprecedented high temperatures. He developed the technique known as micro-fragmentation to reduce the time it takes to rebuild coral reefs. With the faster growth times, he thinks more heat-resistant coral will survive, which can then be singled out for micro-fragmentation into more heat-resistant coral.
