Doing population controls of coral predators to assist recovery on reefs impacted by the 2016 mass coral bleaching event. A total of 790 corallivore snails (Drupella spp.) were removed from the Reef Rescuers transplanted site in Cousin Island Special reserve.

Another 28 corallivore starfishes (Crown-of-Thorns) were injected with lethal doses of vinegar on the resilient reef of Trompeuse.

Scarring and sheeting of nursery grown corals are among the first steps towards successful rearing. The scaring process - depending on the growth structure and type of coral - can take anywhere from two weeks to a month and a half.

Good news for the reefs of Seychelles! Over 1,000 super coral nubbins are happily growing in the Reef Rescuer coral nursery.
