Saving coral reefs will take a lot of teamwork and collaboration across scientists, industries and individuals. One important tool is micro-fragmentation and re-skinning. Sarah Hamlyn is a scientist at the Mote Marine Labs’ Elizabeth Moore International Center for Coral Reefs Research and Restoration. She helps maintain 21 species of stony and branching coral and works to regrow damaged coral reefs off the Florida coast 40 to 50 times faster than they can regrow in the wild.
