The 2017 Reef Program ended prematurely after the devastating and unexpected death of Tucker Francis ’16, a member of the TABOR BOY crew and the Tabor family. After a period of mourning, we made every effort to resume the last few cruises, but were unable to overcome the many logistical challenges in a short timeframe. We plan to resume REEF and our important research on Elkhorn coral in 2019, the next year of the program’s two year research rotation.
