We get into a
coral garden!

What it is about

A reforestation program of the Mediterranean orange coral currently threatened by pollution and climate change. We support the recovery and planting of 4 zones, called "coral gardens", equivalent to 60,000 coral units planted and seeded.

How and where?

HyT's team of scientists rescue and recover coral colonies that have been detached from the natural environment and are unable to survive. At the same time, they plant the larvae of the orange coral so that they can take root and create new colonies in a favorable place such as the artificial reefs, called "coral gardens", located in the Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo Natural Park.

The sexual reproduction of orange coral occurs once a year under specific meteorological conditions: full moon and sufficiently warm water temperature, between 18 and 20º.

About the Orange Coral

The orange coral Astroides calycularis is a species endemic to the Mediterranean Sea, so it lives exclusively in this area of the planet.

It is currently threatened due to pollution, rising sea temperatures and the spread of invasive alien species, such as the Asian brown alga Rugulopteryx okamurae, which has been advancing very expansively in the Spanish Mediterranean since 2016.
