In December, 36 new coral frames were transplanted into the waters around Landaa Giraavaru, bringing our total for the year to 420 frames (and beating this year’s goal of 400 frames). We also monitored (photographed, cleaned and maintained) a total of 368 frames this month. We observed that the Al Barakat frames are now attracting plenty of fish and invertebrate life (e.g.: LG552, LG1144), with the oldest corals from 2007 now fully grown over their supporting frames (e.g.: LG0082).

At Kuda Huraa, we transplanted and deployed 19 new frames, including our now ‘famous’ Christmas tree shape ! This brings our annual total for 2014 to 255 coral frames.
