Winner: Coral reefs. With the destruction of coral reefs becoming an increasing concern, we celebrate the news that the Florida Aquarium bred and raised 560 corals to an offshore reef in the Keys. The goal of the project is to help coral restoration efforts in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Good work!
Loser: It’s too hot! Everyone complains about the weather, and so do we. But even by Florida standards, the last several days have been unusually scorching. Tampa is setting heat records, and the “feels-like” temperature has reached 110 degrees. Oh, and summer didn’t officially arrive until June 21.
