Reef Regeneration Project


June 14, 2014

Rahil Kapur, a 16 year old living in Singapore, contacted us expressing interest in participating in a reef regeneration project. He took part in a large-scale biorock project created by the government in the Phillpines and this inspired him to want to do similar work elsewhere. As Rahil will be with us for a short time (a day and a half of diving) we decided that it would be a great idea for him to do something easy and fun, but that at the same time we hope will have a very positive effect. Together with our in-house marine biologist, Dimpy Jacobs, he will place coconut halves in strategic locations on our house reef, with the hope that it will encourage flamboyant cuttlefish to lay their eggs there. Coconut halves (facing down) are a favourite choice of flamboyant cuttlefish mothers wishing to hide and protect their eggs from predators which include hermit crabs and sea-snails. Coconut halves are also a great home for certain species of gobies, a day-time refuge for nocturnal nudibranchs, and also favour the growth of other, smaller organisms such as bryozoans which in turn provide habitat for larger creatures. Thanks Rahil for your enthusiasm to work with us on our great house-reef!
