Adopt A Coral Project on Koh Tao
The project consists of quarterly pictures and measurements of coral growth progress over a period of time and is a pioneering project led by Eco Koh Tao.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of coral restoration, not all corals survive but if the adopted transplant expires within its first year of growth, it will be replaced with a new one along with new research and data collection.
Coral Transplant & Data Collection Koh Tao
Once adopted, the corals are removed from the nursery then transplanted into one of the many different artificial structures where they can thrive.
The Adopt A Coral data is collected every 3 months to show growth, colour and improvement. It is a slow progression but in time, the structures themselves should become self-reliant and sustainable.
To go one step further, it is also possible to adopt an entire purpose built structure with 10 coral transplants attached.
Contribute to Coral Research on Koh Tao
Adopting a single coral transplant or a structure is perfect for those who wish to contribute to the ongoing conservation research and study of coral in varying conditions over time.
Coral restoration work on Koh Tao forms an important part of the many marine conservation initiatives in progress here and you can find out more information about this project and more by sending us a message.
