Coral Restoration Program

 Content for Mains Enrichment (CME)

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is taking measures to restore and protect coral reefs that have been impacted by bleaching events and human activities. Efforts are being made to promote environmental projects, including the growth of artificial corals and the restoration of damaged corals by the diving community.

 

However, experts highlight that unless the underlying cause of coral reef degradation, such as overheating seas due to climate change, is addressed, restoration efforts may not be sustainable.

 

Other programmes in India: ReefWatch Marine Conservation (by NGO); Gulf of Kutch Coral Conservation and Restoration Project (by the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) and Gujarat Forest Department)
