Coral Restoration Projects
Many coral reefs around the world find themselves under pressure from climate change and a steady decline in fish communities and coral colonies. To ensure the reef surrounding Kokomo continues to thrive, we launched the Kokomo Coral Restoration Project in March 2018. Lead by our Marine Biology Team and Marine Department, guests are encouraged to take part in learning how to identify heat resilient corals, before planting them into a nursery and transplanting them back onto the Kokomo House Reef. To date, Kokomo has transplanted over 300 corals back onto the House Reef and currently houses over 1,300 corals in our nursery. This is a great hands-on experience, which allows guests to play their part to assist in environmental sustainability.
