Coral Restoration May to July 2020 Report

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, no actions were taken during this period. We appreciate We appreciate the donations received, mostly recurring and few new ones. We hope to be able to go back out to sea, as given extremely high sea termperatures we fear many corals will die from bleaching. Stay tune for next report.

On a different project, and taking advantage of covid-restrictions that included a drastic decline in tourism activities, we might be able to see some positve environmental responses as a result of this. A water quality study is being conducted to assess potential water quality improvement due to the drastic reduction in water use for the reduced human activities.
