Coral Mission Foundation
Indian Ocean, Maldives
Coral reef restoration
Coral Mission Foundation builds coral nurseries where coral fragments can grow and thrive in a protected environment in the Maldives. They obtain their coral fragments from various locations in the Maldives, where reef damage from snorkelers, divers, and construction work is common. Their current undertaking is relocating an entire coral reef near the Maamigili Island airport, where an extension to the runway will destroy a nearby reef. Coral Mission have been granted permission to collect the area’s corals and relocate them to the nearby island of Dhigurah.
