Coral Re-planting for Damaged Borneo Corals

Coral Re-Planting in Borneo

Last Sunday morning was among the best we had, resident Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann, Timmy (Downbelow local Divemaster Trainee) & Captain Along placed all of the planted corals from the previous day’s “Coral for Life” incentive program on our artificial house reef.

The damaged corals were snagged by an illegal fishing net on one of our popular dives and were collected and re-planted by the wonderful kids from the Darul Bakti Orphanage during the program.

While we took care of the planting, our international Go-Pro interns returned to the dive site and removed the net completely.

So between us, we have minimised the impact & had fun underwater at the same time!

Great thing to do on a Sunday morning.
