Resilient Corals bring hope for Caribbean Reefs

In a promising breakthrough, Northeastern scientist Steven Vollmer has identified disease-resistant supercorals in the Caribbean, offering hope for the future of coral reefs. His research pinpointed dozens of staghorn genotypes with high disease resistance, potentially transforming underwater coral nurseries. This discovery enables farmers to select the best-performing corals, bolstering the restoration process. While challenges remain, this news shines a ray of hope for the revival of these vital ecosystems critical for biodiversity, tourism, and protecting coastlines.
