Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Coral reef regeneration project. 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. These scientists are researching methods of producing heat-resistant coral that would be less vulnerable to climate change. This project is part of an effort run in collaboration with the Four Seasons Resort to artificially cultivate corals and to nurture the ailing reefs back to health. Photographed in the Maldives.
