Have you heard about the Coral Lines Project at Gili Lankanfushi? The luxury resort is the first resort in the Maldives to work on low-tech and high-efficiency coral reef recovery techniques that involve rope. The sustainable secluded paradise, Gili Lankanfushi reopened its doors on 1st September 2020.

According to Gili Lankanfushi, the project offers 4 things. Firstly, guests are educated during an unforgettable close-up encounter with corals. The project is also a contribution to coral reef rehabilitation science. In addition to that, the project is a way to fund Gili’s social & environmental projects. Most importantly the project helps one small coral reef to recover.

Coral Lines is a one-of-a-kind project in Maldives. The project is not focused on profit, rather on science. Furthermore, Coral Lines is one of the very few coral restoration projects that shares the findings online, on an as-we-go basis. Gili Lankanfushi revealed this enables them to build awareness within the general public as they work to illustrate their results and share the results with other scientists researching in the field.
