Protecting coral reefs

Following the dramatic decline of coral reefs in 2009, many such reefs died in Mauritius island lagoons. At Anse La Raie, in the northern part of the country, 60% of the coral population was decimated. The NGO Reef Conservation, supported by Total, conducted a major coral reef survey as well as various studies. In the Anse La Raie Voluntary Marine Conservation Area (VMCA), the NGO also created an area for growing coral with the aim of achieving transplantations and helping restore the coral reef.
