In South Florida on New Year’s Day I received good news
while reading the morning paper. An article by William Gibson of the Washington
Bureau states “The year brought evidence that federal, state and local efforts
have helped preserve South Florida’s depleted coral reefs, which have overcome
disease and ship groundings to flourish”. 
I am looking for any studies to support this claim. It seems
to be in sharp contrast to what we are seeing while diving the local
reefs..  I have been diving in South
Florida for over 35 years and have watched the steady decline in the reefs. I
find the claim that our reefs are flourishing hard to believe.  I am hoping that someone can provide me with
studies and data to prove me wrong.
