Description

In 2001, Maldivian environmental consultancy company Seamarc started working with Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa to improve coral cover around the Resort and aid reefs damaged by coral bleaching. Little did either party know that their partnership would develop to become one of the most successful reef propagation projects of its kind in the world: Reefscapers. Today, Reefscapers runs pioneering projects at the two Four Seasons islands of Kuda Huraa and Landaa Giraavaru in the Maldives. Sponsored by the Resorts and their guests, the transplantation process involves attaching coral fragments onto a coral frame – produced by a local co-operative of eight employees – to boost existing reef habitats and generate new ones.
