At Belize Marine TREC we spend hundreds of hours every year over
the Ambergris - Caye Caulker Back Reef in Northern Belize.  During the 
last five to ten years we have seen a dramatic increase in Acropora prolifera
as well as Orbicella (formerly Montastraea) faveolata.  They are a bright spot
giving us cause for some optimism when discussing the current state of coral
reefs with our students.
