KEY WEST, FL, February 3, 2023 — The College of the Florida Keys continues its 2023 VIP Series with a presentation on “Coral Restoration” by Dr. Jason Spadaro, Mote Marine Lab and Aquarium Postdoctoral Scientist as well as CFK marine science adjunct instructor, on Thursday, February 16 at 7 p.m. in the Tennessee Williams Theatre on the Key West Campus.
In his presentation, Dr. Spadaro will explain why coral reefs are in trouble and how centuries of natural and human effects have degraded the reefs to the point where natural recovery is not likely. Fortunately, scientists, including Dr. Spadaro and his colleagues at Mote Marine Lab, are working to protect and restore the reefs. Dr. Spadaro will discuss the various methods that he and other Mote scientists are using to solve the complex problems of our coral reefs and help better understand what is necessary to preserve, protect, and restore our iconic coral reef ecosystems.
In its ninth season, the College’s VIP Series invites the community to learn from the Visions, Ideas, and Perspectives of speakers of local, regional, and national prominence. The 2023 season includes presentations that focus on timely topics relevant to Keys’ audiences. Tickets for CFK’s VIP Series events are $5 at the door. Admission is free for students at CFK and Monroe County schools. For more information, call CFK at 305-296-9081 or visit the College’s website at CFK.edu/VIP.
