Press Release: Coral reef restoration by the tourism sector - Nature Seychelles pioneers science-based method of measuring success

Coral reef restoration projects are becoming a popular corporate environmental responsibility activity at hotel resorts. Such involvement of private businesses offers the opportunity to expand coral reef conservation. Unfortunately, these projects are oftentimes PR-heavy but scientifically light. The main problem is that the hotel staff don’t monitor the restored reef over time to quantify the success or failure of the restoration activity. There is a lack of user-friendly monitoring methods for hotel staff that are robust enough to detect changes over time.
