Recruitment Tile Study

A collective of local organisations looked at relative coral recruitment both within and among five reefs in the region following mass spawning in late 2023. This project was a resounding success in collaborating to collect meaningful data while building skills to identify new coral recruits. The data and training will hopefully be the start of a long term Hub program to support studies of reef connectivity!

We will be sharing our initial results from this project very soon, a huge thank you to all of the Hub network who deployed tiles on their reefs and who joined us in the lab to help count coral recruits on these tiles.
