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.
