Coral Line by: Preethi Krishnan & Kiron Rangaswamy

Date created: 17 Aug 2015

Coral Type: Bushy

Coral species: Acropora sp.

Message: RANGOS

Update June 2021: the remaining colonies of this line have been left to grow for a number of years and were transplanted in May, 2021. Due to the fact that these corals survived the 2016 mass bleaching event, this was an important line to transplant back onto the reef as they have shown increased resilience to environmental stress factors. The corals are now an integral part of an ecosystem that provides essential functions such as food and habitat for Maldives’ diverse marine life.
