I have not yet had the immense pleasure of viewing a real-life spawning event (although I will in November!) and I’m sure many of you haven’t had that chance either. Well, have no fear Teens4Oceans is here, now you have a chance to witness the event in silico (on the computer).
This student-based nonprofit teamed up with a local dive center Ocean Frontiers, imaging company Wild Goose Imaging, and an online education organization Oceans Classrooms to live-stream footage of coral spawning near Grand Cayman Island.
Spawning events happen usually within the same time frame (to the minute almost) every year and its predicted the corals will spawn at 9:15pm MST, you can view it here
Of course since it is a Friday night many of you might not be able to catch this live so you can catch footage from last night’s spawning event here; action starts at 1:50.
