Chatting with Friends of Rio Grande Valley Reef.
In this episode of the American Shoreline Podcast, co-hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham sit down with Gary Glick, the President of Friends of Rio Grande Valley Reef, to discuss how the RGV Reef was created. The discussion dives into the grassroots nature of Gary's organization, which is dedicated to building and restoring fish habitat, including nursery reefs, to put fish back in the Gulf of Mexico. Listeners will gain insight into the importance of low, mid, and high relief reefs, as well as the significance of providing graduating sized stepping stones of complex habitat to carry multiple species through their life stages.
