Coral Line by: Khadheeja Ahmed Didi

Coral Type: Bushy

Coral species: Acropora humilis

Message: In the loving memory of an amazing mother, sister & daughter- Gillian Pringle & in the loving memory of an amazing father, husband and grandfather- Keith Wood. Always in our hearts...

Notes: You will notice there has been a substantial decline in % Fragments Alive at the 1 year monitoring. This mortality was unfortunately as a result of the El nino induced coral bleaching that occurred during Feb/March/April of this year. A lot of fragments in the coral nursery were killed but there were also a lot which survived, both give us important information about coral resilience for for our research into coral rehabilitation. 
You can see at 1.5 years, the remaining corals are growing well! We will transplant this line to the reef in the first half of 2017.
