From Little Acorns Coral Reefs Grow and Flourish


Remember the coral frame we built when we last stayed at the Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru?

We blogged about how we and the Reefscapers Team built it as part of their efforts with coral propagation.

Our barren looking frame was taken by divers and placed below the surface in the Water Villas Arc area in July 2013 with the species Acropora aspera, Acropora tenuis, Acropora digitifera, Acropora humbles affixed to it


This is what it looked like when it was placed underwater. Now a year later our efforts are beginning to show signs of life.  To take a look at how it is beginning to flourish visit the Marine Savers Web site and enter the frame number LG1809 into the box and then click

To get an even better view, travel to the wonderful island yourself and get the Reefscapers Team to take you on a guided snorkelling trip to see how well our frame is growing.
