Filipinnovation on Coral Reef Restoration

updates

The Philippines is rich in natural marine resources. However, sustaining these resources is a challenge. The Philippines Department of Science & Technology is now commencing their Boracay Island pilot project of reef restoration, the fifth such project in the country. The project involves coral nurseries on some of Boracay's shallow dive sites, plus an aquarium incubator to grow corals for transplantation. August 2012 saw dive center staff from the island attend a training day to learn techniques for coral transplantation.
