EarthRehab adopted Coral Cove Park earlier this year, 2009 to guarantee that pollution and debris was removed from this valuable eco-system. (Both on land and in the water)

Coral Cove Park is a limestone and wormrock Coral Reef Eco-system that boast increadible sea life including but not limited to: 4 species of Sea Turtles, Manatees, Cuttlefish, Octopus, Sharks, Sea Urchins, Florida Lobster, Snook, Parrotfishes, Rays, Gobies, Blennies and Soft Corals.

Individually the species that inhabit this Reef are protected by the Endangered Species Act.

Concluding, If this Reef Tract was designated as Critical Habitat for Endangered Species it would be protected from Inland Water Pollution that continues to challenge it’s health and WQMS would have to be addressed.

  1. I am a huge fan of Coral Cove and have numerous underwater videos shot at the park posted on my YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/axelray These videos show off the underwater wildlife the park supports.

    There are many fascinating aspects to Coral Cove, including sea turtle nests, a near-shore reef, the coquina formations, Blowing Rocks. There is always something interesting going on whether it is high tide or low, flat-calm or rough water.

  2. I think the majority of beachgoers in our community don’t realize the diversity of sealife just 25 yards away from were they sit in their beachchairs.
    It’s our job to educate them.
    Grab your extra masks and snorkels and take a stranger out to see what they’re missing.
    Their perspective will change forever.
