CRF is a non-profit group “dedicated to creating offshore nurseries and restoration programs for threatened coral species.” In Bonaire, CRF focuses on growing, harvesting and transplanting staghorn and elkhorn coral. The PADI Coral Restoration Diver course was created to allow volunteer divers (both tourists and residents alike) to participate in this exciting program.
So now that you know a bit about the mission of CRF Bonaire, the next post will get to the exciting part – the underwater work in action!
