Coral Restoration Foundation Curacao visited Baoase to build a pop-up coral nursery
September 4, 2019
On August 8th non-profit organization Coral Restoration Foundation Curacao (CRFC) visited Baoase Luxury Resort to build a pop-up coral nursery. Over a 3 year period and partnership with CRFC, 240 corals will be hung on coral trees providing optimum conditions for growth. By the end of the partnership, it is the goal to have planted 1500 onto the reef.
Oliver Zahn and Jesse Zahn Van der Valk dove alongside Katie Leeper, Rat Dinardi, Pol Bosch and Liene Muzikante (photographer) from CRFC. It was an amazing experience for Oliver and Jesse, as they contributed to a great cause. The coral clusters which were planted, do not only improve the health of the reefs but also increase fish populations in the area.
