Coral Line by: Yosvaris Pasawongse

Coral Type: Branching

Coral species: Acropora sp.

Message: Preserve this beauty

Note: We see a dramatic die off at the 6 month monitoring period for this line. This mortality was caused by the 2o16 El Nino that hit us in April/ May of 2016. The El Nino caused a rise in water temperature which killed a huge amount of coral. This line lost  80% of living fragments as a result of the El Nino. For more information, visit http://lines.lankanfushi.com/p/coral-lines.html or email our project manager at deborah.burn@gili-lankanfushi.com. The remaining corals are growing well, and we hope these bleach resistant colonies will make our reef more resilient in the future!
