Once the primary coral reef building species throughout the Caribbean, elkhorn populations have declined as much as 90% as a result of global climate change, over-fishing and harmful practices, and direct and indirect sources of pollution.
They are now listed as threatened on the US Endangered Species Act.
The Nature Conservancy is working towards the recovery of elkhorn (and staghorn) corals in the US Virgin Islands by growing and multiplying rescued corals in underwater nurseries and then using nursery-grown corals to restore degraded reefs.
