Dos Uvas Nearshore Coral Rehabilitation Project
| Total images: 0
LOCATION: Dos Uvas Beach, Cozumel, Q. Roo, Mexico
PROPOSAL DATE: Dos Uvas has secured 20,000 of funding and is in need of additional funds to help restore the nearshore coral reef habitats lost in recent hurricanes. Project will start when funding is secured. Permits have already been issued for the work.
Activation of Coral Team will be required within 3 months of the build date.
PROJECT AIMS. Cozumel was hit hard by Category 5 Hurricane Wilma and an assessment of the Marine Park reveled a serious bottleneck in lost nearshore coral reef habitats.
BUDGET: Coral Team Activation $25,000, Coral rescue supplies $7,500.
Note: Coral Team could be activated with fewer members at a reduced cost with the potential to rescue less corals but to provide training to the marine park. Team could be activated at much higher levels if funding was available for additional deployment of Reef Balls. Overall budget range ($17,500 minimal efforts, $32,500 requested, $300,000 maximum)
