Reefscapers – Coral Propagation Experiments

Reefscapers – Coral Propagation Experiments

Join the Four Seasons Apprentice Class of 2015, as they try their hand at making their very own coral frames.
And we start one experiment to study our coral propagation techniques, and a second to research how coral frames will impact a bed of seagrass growing in the lagoon.

A Record Month for our Reefscapers Coral Frames!

A Record Month for our Reefscapers Coral Frames!

Our Reefscapers teams had a very busy April, with over 100 new coral frames added to our lagoons !
Take a unique look at how our ‘Moon Reef’ is growing, from both high in the sky and beneath the waves, and read about how the warm sea temperatures can affect the corals.

Join our intern Beth here at Kuda Huraa, as she helps with the guest dolphin excursions and dives beneath the waves to photograph turtles on the reef.
Beth also assists with an emergency surgical operation on ‘Naseeb’ – a rescued Olive Ridley turtle, found entangled in a discarded fishing line and now recovering at our Centre.

A total of 58 new frames were transplanted into the lagoons during March, and you can also see how well some of our mature frames are growing.

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.

Reefscapers: New Reef Fish Recruits !

Our Reefscapers teams have had a busy October, transplanting new coral frames and continuing with photographing and maintenance all around the lagoons.
We also start a new project to assess just how much fish and marine life decides to set up home in our artificial reefs.

Reefscapers During September

Reefscapers During September

We have been busy weighing our coral frames, to calculate how quickly the corals grow over time. Plus we have a fun visit from the children of Maalhos School, who have a guided tour of our Marine Discovery Centre and make their very own coral frame.
