Caption: Coral reef regeneration project. Diver swimming over fish and anemones on coral grown using propagation trays. In 1998, unusually warm oceanic waters caused by an exceptionally strong El Nino event bleached and killed corals across a large portion of the Maldivian reefs. This project is part of an effort run by the Four Seasons Resort to artificially cultivate corals and to nurture the ailing reefs back to health. Photographed off Landaa Giraavaru, Maldives.
