Gardening Coral in Fiji

Efforts are underway to revive damaged Pacific coral reefs by actively gardening them (propagating and transplanting the coral).

This video was directed and produced by Jonathan Clay for the BBC's Natural History Unit as part of their "South Pacific" documentary. The resolution is high enough to make the video enjoyable at full-screen magnification.

Kalel: While I have seen some pretty stupid human tricks when attempting to protect the environment, such as cleaning dead salmon bodies from spawn rivers and basically depleting the river of food for countless organisms, but I doubt that this is an example of that.

Abundant coral is a good thing. It's like johnny apple seeding the ocean. We aren't introducing new or aggressive species. We are merely helping maintain the areas that we helped destroy the crap out of.
