Rewilding the mind

Cousin Island Special Reserve is a feast for the senses. A thriving carnival of colour and light, pulsing to the drum of the crystal-clear breakers that surround it, and festooned in a blanket of tropical heat. The island’s feathered tenants fill the air with their lyrics, and the earth tirelessly shifts, day and night, with life.

The pioneers of coral transplantation

It takes sturdy sea legs, perfect timing and the precision of a drill to transplant corals. Not only do you need good weather conditions to seamlessly move a rope fully laden with corals to a transplantation site, but also the perfect mix of cement to ensure that corals hold to the reef when they are planted.
