In February 2015 I spent an enjoyable day at the Four Seasons Resort at Petite Anse on Mahé Island Seychelles. I was there to photograph the new coral reef restoration project that WiseOceans have set up together with the Four Seasons Resort. WiseOceans are a leading resource in marine conservation jobs, advice, news, events, marine education, information and recruiting marine educators.
'The Petite Anse Reef Restoration Project is a brand new and innovative approach to coral reef restoration, born of a desire to return the house reef of the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles to the thriving coral reef ecosystem that it once was'. WiseOceans is aiming to restore 10,000 square metres of degraded limestone reef through the transplantation of 16,000 coral fragments, by June 2017.
