What a great week it has been here in the beautiful Turks and Caicos. Finally we got permission to be able to go out and treat the corals that are infected with SCTLD. Using a paste base and amoxicillin mixture, our mission was to identify and treat coral colonies that can be saved. Above you will see 3 kinds of boulder and mound corals (Reef Builders) that I got to treat. The idea is to press in a layer of antibiotic paste at the interface where the disease is attacking the coral. Hopefully, this week we were able to save corals that have been growing for ten, or possibly hundreds of years. Very satisfying underwater work!!!
