City of Dallas: Coral Reefs of Texas and Louisiana - Zoom

May 19 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary, off the coasts of Texas and Louisiana, was designated in 1992 to protect some of the healthiest coral reefs in the world. The unlikely location of these beautiful reefs at East and West Flower Garden Banks, in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, led to further studies of surrounding reefs and banks to find out what kinds of marine life lived there and how they might be connected. This led to the addition of Stetson Bank in 1996, and in 2021 an additional 14 banks became part of the sanctuary. More than 30 years of exploration in this region have shown us the importance of conserving and protecting these coral reefs, coral communities, and deep coral habitats.

The presentation will be held on Zoom. Register online.
