Come and meet the newest residents to SEA LIFE Brighton in the brand new Secrets of the Reef display!
SEA LIFE has been working with a local community project in the Maldives to rebuild coral reefs damaged by climate change and a major Tsunami. Without the reef, the area once surrounded with fish has become barren and lifeless.
The project has introduced specially produced coral frames for a number of years to grow a new coral habitat and provide a safe haven for fish to return to the reef and breed. Alongside this, the new coral reef protects the islands from erosion. The project also allows local fisherman to collect a small number of fish without impacting the new reef. This encourages the local community to protect their reef as a sustainable source of income.
