Since the first frame of corals was placed in the lagoon at Constance Halaveli back in November 2011, we have seen dramatic growth in each piece of coral.
Coral is now growing on the sea bed
As of this month, April, they are now strong enough to be taken off their surrogate support system – the handmade frame – and have been planted in the sea bed at Halaveli. This is very exciting for us because this is our first opportunity to see if the Reefscape project will be successful.
In the 10 days since they have been planted, there are several indicators that the corals are able to not only survive but also thrive under more natural conditions. The corals are strong and healthy which are two very good signs that our project will be a success.
Having planted the coral around the Dive Center, we can see that marine life is also thriving. We now have a lot more fish coming to welcome our guests at the arrival jetty. Beautiful.
