Coral restoration underway in La Paz
The area’s coral reefs have taken the brunt of the increase in tourist traffic as a result of La Paz’s reputation as a top snorkeling destination.
Local and regional authorities are actively intervening to support the restoration of the coral reefs and enhance the snorkeling experience for visitors in La Paz.
By establishing coral reef colonies off the coast of La Paz, they are actively working to protect and preserve the local underwater ecosystem. More than 7,500 coral colonies have already been planted, and there are still about 6,000 to go.
In this location, people go into the water to gather the fragments of the coral reef that have broken off and put them in a “incubator” where they can grow the reef segments.

350 coral gametes planted in Punta Sur in Cozumel
By sowing 350 coral gametes in Punta Sur, the Cozumel Parks and Museums Foundation has increased the scope of its reef restoration program. For the first time, 350 coral gametes have been sown.
The coral that was planted in Punta Sur came from the Puerto Morelos laboratory of the National University’s (UNAM) Institute of Sciences of the Sea and Limnology.
Currently, there are over 2,000 fragments. 500 are in Punta Sur, and 1,500 are along the Chankanaab coastline.
A restoration technique was created by researchers that enables the collection of coral gametes (their reproductive cells) to fertilize their eggs and produce new corals in order to preserve the existing corals.
The process, which is now a cutting-edge project, reproduces coral using their genetic material rather than cloning it, which is why the organisms are known as sexual recruits.
