Coral Planting update

Wednesday June 23, 2010

95% of the coral cuttings that have been planted on Tokoriki’s experimental coral planting program have taken. It’s a pleasure to swim past the large mesh coral tables and see juvenile butterflyfish pecking away at the coral polyps. It shouldn’t be too long before we are able to transplant the coral frags to the reef. We look forward to less busy times, to expand the program.
