Type de corail: Digitate

Espece de corail: Acropora tenuis

Update 2017: This line is growing very well. It has good survival and good growth. Soon we will transplant the line to the reef. For now, we have an outbreak of coral eating starfishes, so we are keeping the lines in the nursery for a little longer than planned. Once we have removed the starfish problem, we will transplant the older coral lines!

Type de corail: Digitate

Espece de corail: Acropora tenuis

Update 2017: Excellent to see very good growth and survival for this line, even following the El Nino bleaching event. We can see from the 1 year photo that this line did not lose it's colour, and so is an important line for us to grow.

Coral Line by:  Paul Miles & Sue Whitehouse

Coral Type: Digitate

Coral species: Acropora vermiculata

2017 Update: We are delighted to report this line is still growing well. It was one of the lines that survived the bleaching event in 2016. We are looking forward to transplanting our lines onto the reef. This has not happened yet firstly because of the El nino bleaching event, and secondly, because we are currently experiencing an outbreak of coral eating predators on our reef. We are working to eradicate these before the transplantation phase, which is now set for March 2017. To learn more about the bleaching event, head to our page.

Coral Line by: Maldives National University

Coral Type: Digitate

Coral species: Acropora sp.

2017 Update: MNU Students will be delighted to know that whilst their coral line bleached during our El Nino event in 2016 (see 1 year photo), the entire line completely recovered! We can see the corals have regained their colours and have started to grow again (see 1.5 year photo). This is one of our best lines in terms of survival and growth and we can't wait to transplant it onto the reef and see how it survives. The line remains in the nursery for now as we have an outbreak of coral eating starfish (Crown of thorns/Kaashi boa) on our reef. We are trying to eliminate this problem before transplantation. Look for new updates in March 2017 when we hope to transplant! To learn more about the El Nino event and coral bleaching, head to our bleaching page. 
You may note the survival graph below is not updated, we are having some technical problems, but we can tell you, the line is still 100% alive!
