Coral Restoration

We are working on going to the Bonaire Islands (former Dutch antilles), but the destination has yet to be decided as it is very important to us to get a cooperation with a local school. Therefore the final destination will be to an area with a school we can cooperate with.

In 1998 it was found that 97% of the coral reefs of the Seychelles archipelago were bleached and destroyed (due to El Nino), which affected marine life to an extreme extent and thus also the population dependent on fisheries. Following intensive restoration work with coral transplants and redundancies, one went from a 2% coral cover in 2012 to 16% in 2014

Goal

To study and experience the bleached and damaged coral reefs and contribute to the restoration of coral and coral reefs. Experience the role of the coral reefs biologically and socially for the population of the island group.Experience how to live and eat, and what thoughts the people of an island group do to ensure that production and consumption are sustainable.
