Brevard Zoo Engages the Community in Lagoon Restoration

Jun 20, 2018

VOLUNTEERS MAKE IT HAPPEN

Brevard Zoo, in partnership with UCF, has been using special oyster restoration mats made of 36 oyster shells and aquaculture grade mesh to rebuild oyster reef habitat in Mosquito Lagoon, a region of the Indian River Lagoon located in Volusia County that is part of the Canaveral National Seashore. Community volunteers help by making and deploying mats that act as a nursery to free-swimming oyster larvae.
