Utila Coral Restoration
In May 2018, Kanahau partnered alongside the GoECO Program at Utila Dive Centre and now proudly presents the Utila Coral Restoration Project! (Read more/follow us here)!
Thanks to the authorization and participation of the Honduran Marina Mercante and ICF, the project aims to install and maintain several coral trees (an effective methodology that serves to as a nursery for threatened species of coral); as well as a source for education and training opportunities for marine biologists and researchers at the Kanahau Facility!
