Rebuilding the Reefs – Don’t Touch the Substrates

Our friends at DiveTime Abaco are working hard with the Reef Rescue Network to place substrates amongst the reefs so that new coral can grow. Examples of the substrates are below so you know what to look for when diving. Please do not touch or remove these integral objects!

With the plethora of people in Abaco for Regatta Time in Abaco – we ask you to share this information from DiveTime Abaco.

From their Facebook page “Another day, another mission. We assisted our friends from The Perry Institute for Marine Science with the strategic placement of substrates amongst our reefs. These substrates will assist in the collection of coral spawn and allow new corals to be grown and then out planted as part of the Reef Rescue Network effort to rebuild the Coral reefs of Abaco. If you happen to discover these weird looking objects, please resist the urge to touch or take the substrates. Please spread the word. #reefrescuenetwork #divetimeabaco”
