Cuba has one of the best preserved coral populations in the Americas

A major piece is the island nation’s 100-year climate mitigation strategy, Tarea Vida, which includes efforts to restore coral reefs in order to protect against sea level rise. Cuba possesses one of the largest and best kept coral populations in the Americas, something that Pedro Chevalier, PhD, an expert from Cuba’s National Aquarium, says must be preserved. “Nature is a long-term investment, not a short-term business. If we don’t take care of our home, we will disappear as a species.”
