Great to meet you here at the SECORE weblog 2009!
Tune in and stay up to date about the coral spawning expedition on Curacao. We hope to show you all about the spawning activities of the Elkhorn and Staghorn coral on this island. And if all goes well about our successes in collecting coral spawn and producing lots of coral babies.
Click on the different menu bottons to read more about our arrival, our stay at Carmabi, the fieldwork and all participants.
So check in with us daily to see how we are doing!
