Upper Keys

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.

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)
