Biscayne National Park is home to the third largest coral reef system in the world. One of the largest marine parks in the national system and adjacent to a major metropolitan city, Biscayne National Park is a boaters paradise.
Most mariners are cautious to avoid the fragile reefs just below the water’s surface but others are not and run aground on or near these living creatures so vital to vast numbers of marine wildlife. The park is considering how best to manage these corals when they are damaged. Read what NPCA has to say about the park’s Coral Reef Restoration Plan.
