Description Monitoring and Rehabilitation of reefs in Villingili - This is a project intended to rehabilitate and conserve the coral reefs of Villingili through community based coral reef rehabilitation and monitoring. We believe that rehabilitating and maintaining healthy coral reefs are essential for the country’s fishing and tourism industries and for developing resilience to climate change in these vulnerable islands. By experimenting and demonstrating a successful community based coral reef management system and sharing our experiences with other similar organizations, we can work within the island communities to share experiences and develop such projects in the future.
