Coral Line by: The Yamagishi Family

Date created: 3 January 2016

Coral Type: Branching

Coral species: Acropora austera

Message: For Kantaro

Update May, 2021: the colonies have grown substantially over the years and gave us 12 large colonies to transplant to the reef. Since this line survived the 2016 mass coral bleaching event that wiped out 73% of all shallow water corals across the Maldives, this was a particularly important line to transplant. It is now home to many different kinds of marine animals on the Gili Lankanfushi reef.
