Home » Small transferred corals from Keys Marine Lab
December 2018, 90 corals were transferred from Keys Marine Lab (KML) in Marathon, FL to their new home at Florida Aquarium’s Center for Conservation (FLAQ) in Apollo Beach–in response to the stony coral tissue loss disease event currently affecting Florida's Coral Reef. This transfer frees up space at KML to allow for upcoming rescue collections.
