reef rehab

In 2010, RCM conducted its first reef rehabilitation project in Pangkor with coral reef ecologist Kee Alfian. Not to be confused with artificial reefs, reef rehabilitation aims to conserve coral reefs by returning a damaged ecosystem to a close approximation of its condition prior to disturbance. Our approach combines coral nurseries with coral transplanting. It involves collecting coral fragments from donor sites to be planted and grown in a nursery before transplanting them to a permanent site. The nurseries were regularly maintained to ensure that the coral transplants were free from silt and algae, resulting in a reduction in mortality rate and more effective rehabilitation. This programme has now been expanded to 12 sites in five islands across Malaysia. 







Reef Check Malaysia (RCM) is a non-profit organisation that was registered in 2007 to engage with the local community to raise awareness for the importance of, and threats to, coral reefs.
