Child Aid Papua Coral-Garden

In the last two weeks we have grown our school's own coral garden together with local and international partners. 1,643 coral fragments were planted. Of course, our students helped out. In addition to the ecological benefits, the coral garden serves as an educational platform for our students but also as a research platform for our national and international partners.

Ecological benefits

The coral garden is used to restore or expand the existing coral reef. A healthy coral reef is the basic requirement for an intact, marine ecosystem and contributes significantly to coastal protection. Furthermore, the coral garden serves as an ideal place for smaller fish to find shelter. They find protection in the corals and lay their eggs there.
