This is a fantastic video of +Georgia Southern University Biology Professor and Director of the James H. Oliver, Jr., Institute for Coastal Plain Science, Dr. Danny Gleason helping to collect coral spawn on La Bocana Chica Reef in Puerto Morelos, Mexico on August 27, 2013. After striking out 3 nights in a row, the corals finally cooperated; the time window for spawning is only 3-4 nights!  Ania Banaszak, a marine scientist from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Institute of Marine Science and Limnology, Reef Systems Academic Unit at Puerto Morelos, organized this endeavor and has led the group of scientist conducting this research. Many thanks to Paul Selvaggio from the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium for producing this video.
