Help protect, save, and restore our Coral Reefs…..Give a great gift to help ensure the future of our oceans.
The coral reef system in Florida’s waters is the lifeblood of our oceans and the foundation of our marine ecosystems.Florida has the 3rd largest living coral reef in the world and the only living reef in the continental U.S.Coral
reefs provide habitat, food, breeding grounds and protection for fish, dolphins, turtles, manatees, and much of the life that inhabits our waters.
Our coral reefs have suffered serious losses in the last 30 years but there is hope for the future.
Mote Marine Laboratory’s Protect Our Reefs program has more than 2,000 coral colonies in its nurseries awaiting transplantation to reef sites along the southeastern coast of Florida.The Protect Our Reefs license plate, benefiting Mote Marine Laboratory, provides crucial funding for coral reef restoration, research, education, and protection in Florida.
100 % of the $25 plate fee goes directly to Mote Marine Laboratory and has generated nearly $6.5 million dollars since 2004 for the conservation and rebuilding of our reef systems.
Revenue goes to Florida Coral Reef restoration, research, conservation and education.
