Yes you read the correctly WWC did sell the old farm. Read below then check out this video for all of the the juicy details.
ORLANDO, Fla. –than 5 miles from the front gates of SeaWorld Orlando sits a new state-of-the-art coral farming facility with a huge mission of saving Florida’s beautiful coral reefs.
The Florida Coral Rescue Center is the largest facility of its kind in the U.S. that provides a safe, stable environment for coral colonies to receive world-class care and reproduce with the help of a team of coral experts.
Coordinated by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums, the facility has been made possible through the collaboration of several groups, including the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), NOAA Fisheries, Disney Conservation Fund, Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida, SeaWorld & World Wide Corals.

Thank you so much! We love all of our corals and we must do all to save them!

Next frag and sell some to the public.... What people know and love... they protect.

Without a doubt... However, there are laws that prevent us from keeping these Florida beauties unless licensed. Hopefully someday!

The sooner the better for the corals... :). I have always wanted an Acropora palmata colony or one of the ones pictured. Those are amazing. Do you know what those are?
