Unfortunately, coral reefs around the globe are experiencing a decline in growth due to many factors. Disney however is stepping in to do something about the coral reef right in their backyard! They have joined forces with Association of Zoos & Aquariums, the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, NOAA Fisheries, and SeaWorld, to establish the Florida Coral Rescue Center in Orlando.
As shared by Disney: “Did you know the future of Florida’s coral reefs may rely on care from the heart of Central Florida? For the past year, a dedicated team of Disney aquatic wildlife experts and conservationists have been working on a special mission to help save Florida’s coral reefs from the rapid spread of stony coral tissue loss disease, which has put 22 coral species at risk of extinction.” Check out the video below:
