I have mentioned that I webmaster for a diver in the keys who has personally tried to "make a difference". For the last several year Ken has been experimentally growing staghorn coral on his live rock farm (among other experiments) and has become involved with NOAA, Mote and the National Marine Sanctuary to promote restoration. He recently received the Florida award for an individual impacting conservation. NOAA has determined the first place to plant his coral frags and the first harvest and planting started last Friday.
