Coral frame monitoring

December 2011 – This month, Landaa’s MDC monitored 301 frames in the Al Barakat area as well as near the Bar and Staff Beach. Many of the Al Barakat frames are sponsored and they are growing really well – very few have needed to be retransplanted. The water temperature on the house reef has dropped to 28°C and all signs of pale bleaching on the frames have disappeared.

New coral frames

New coral frames

December 2011 – was a very busy month for the MDC at Landaa Giraavaru – we transplanted 51 new frames (a monthly record), 32 of which were sponsored by guests. Frames are growing really well in the Staff Beach area due to a very strong current at the moment. We are placing some of the newer sponsored frames here temporarily so that they will grow quickly, and we can then move them to areas that are more challenging to grow coral.
