CORAL REEF RESTORATION PROJECT

In July 2012 the Pure Blue Foundation started pioneering activities in coral regeneration at Hanuman Bay,Koh Samui with the aim of increasing coral species from 13 to 25. With the assistance from Swiss-French company Coral Reef Creator, this project also focuses in educating local  shermen, guests and children on the importance of coral reefs. Inspite of initial set backs of having damage darti cial reefs, th eproject pushed on and successfully created arti cial reefs later in 2012. These sanctuaries are designed to attract schools of marine species, which in turn will enable new ecosystems to  ourish,and promote sustainable tourism in the area. –– AKARYN Samui
