Coral Line by: Mikail & Aaron

Coral Type: Digitate

Coral species: Acropora sp.

Unfortunately this entire line was killed during the El Nino event in May 2016, which is why we see no growth increase and 0% survival at 6 months and onwards. To learn more about the El Nino and it’s effects, see http://lines.lankanfushi.com/p/coral-lines.html.

Coral Line by: Parveen H

Coral Type: Digitate

Coral species: Acropora sp.

Note: The die off at 6 months was due to the El Nino event in April 2016. This caused the sea surface temperature to increase, which in turn damages the corals. To learn more about the El Nino and coral bleaching, head to our bleaching page here. Luckily, some fragments survived the event (which killed 80% of the coral on our house reef) and these resilient colonies will be used to help replenish the damaged reef system at One Palm Island. You can see in the one year photo how well the remaining colonies are growing! It will be transplanted to the reef soon!

Coral species: Acropora sp.

Message: Live Long & Prosper

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 temperature which killed a huge amount of wild coral. This is one of the lucky lines that still has coral growing on it. Hopefully those few frags remaining will continue to grow and will help us re-seed our damaged coral reef.
