Coral Frames for Citizen Action
Coral frames are an easy and cost-effective coral propagation device deployed as part of our Citizen Restoration Program. Everyone is invited to join this mission.
Coral frames are easy to use, quick to deploy, and can serve as a substrate for up to 50 broken coral fragments. We use coral frames at reef sites where reef degradation is far advanced and natural reef substrate - much needed for coral clip restoration - has been eroded.
In late 2021, we have soft launched the 'Citizen Restoration Program' together with our partners from Summer Bay Resort, Lang Tengah Island. We invite dedicated citizens and divers from all backgrounds to come join us on-site and help us deploy coral frames at a popular dive site in need of restoration. At this site, heavy sedimentation and reef degradation have left many broken corals behind. With each passing day, these corals are at more risk of getting covered by sand and dead coral rubble.
Our aim is to deploy at least 100 coral frames until 2024 with ~5,000 pieces of broken corals. This method aims at mitigating coral loss, restoring a popular snorkeling and dive site, and establishing a 'donor bank' for more reef restoration.
