Coral fragments health and growth in the Reefscapers propagation project in the Maldives
The Reefscapers program is a coral restoration initiative to help reef recovery in the Maldives. It started in 2001, and is most active since the 2015-2016 mass bleaching event. We produced health and growth data for 77,574 transplanted colonies using machine learning algorithms to analyze monitoring pictures. It enables us to assess the ability of coral restoration to help reef recovery after mass bleaching events, on a large scale.
