Coral disease researchers are working hard to find a way to slow the spread of Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease and potentially stop it altogether. It is critical they identify exactly how far the disease has spread around St. Thomas.

At this time, Hull Bay is suspected to be the frontline to the north and Buck Island is the suspected frontline to the south.

Because the disease spreads so very quickly, verification must be done within a short space of time. We can only do this with your help. Learn how to identify coral diseases and join VI Reef Response in The Hunt for Coral Disease Event.
