Coral Nurseries – How it started

Having been facinated by a coral nursery while we were diving with Michael Sherratt  early last year, we have been in touch with Dr. Craig Dahlgren who explained us with enthusiasm the mechanism of the coral nurseries.

We had the chance to participate to one of his expedition at Sandy Cay’s reserve in the Abacos and offer our diving experience to help them to install 3x nurseries with the great assistance of Divetime. This was consisting to collect different corals, tagging them, transporting, cutting in small pieces and hang them on pre-installed nurserie trees. After 1h15 of work with 4x other divers, we finalised to fix 150 little pieces of Coral which hopefully will grow in order to put them back on their reefs.
