Fish Breeding down in the Lab

Fish Breeding down in the Lab

Our Fish Lab is overflowing with life this month !
We’re rolling up our sleeves to categorise our 1,000 baby Clownfish, and producing gallons of algae and zooplankton to keep them well fed.
And take a look at our unusual garden – free of plants, but full of sea anemones !

Sea Turtles – Rescues and Hatchlings

Sea Turtles – Rescues and Hatchlings

Our turtle conservation teams have had a busy start to the year. We’ve been looking for new turtle nests on a remote beach, and have welcomed 12 new hatchlings into our Head Start Programme.
The health of our rescued residents also continues to improve, as we refine our medical care techniques.

Reefscapers Coral Frame Updates

We transplanted almost 50 new coral frames during January, and have been photographing and maintaining 100s more around the islands of Kuda Huraa and Landaa Giraavaru.
Join us on a snorkelling trip around the lagoon, and enjoy our slideshow of mature coral frames – healthy, vibrant, and teaming with marine life.
