Key Largo

Volunteers with the Coral Restoration Foundation plant staghorn coral clippings on a reef in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Monday, June 8, 2015, off Key Largo, Fla. About 70 CRF divers are endeavoring to plant at least 1,000 staghorn corals to help enhance six reefs off the upper Florida Keys. The project, dubbed Plantapalooza, is being staged in conjunction with World Oceans Day and if successful, will be CRF's most prolific single-day planting output. (Bob Care/Florida Keys News Bureau)
