These Floridians are helping save the world's 3rd largest coral reef

“My personal goal, would be to get to the point where everybody around the world is so aware of the crisis facing our coral reefs, that they're all stepping up to take action, and I'm no longer needed,” the Communications Director at Coral Restoration Foundation, Alice Grainger told Yahoo Finance. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration suggests that coral reefs in southeast Florida have an asset value of $8.5 billion, generating $4.4 billion in local sales, $2 billion in local income, and 70,400 jobs. By one NOAA estimate, coral reefs provide economic goods and services worth about $375 billion each year.
