Coral Line by: S & Y Tours

Coral Type: Bushy

Coral species: Acropora sp

Update 2023: The remaining colonies of this line were left to grow for a number of years and were transplanted in February, 2023. 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, which reached up to 30 cm in diameter, are now an integral part of an ecosystem that provides essential functions such as food and habitat for Maldives’ diverse marine life.
