USVI Coral Restoration

We are thrilled to be working with the UVI on this important initiative to replenish the many coral reefs surrounding Lovango Cay.  The UVI and Lovango will use this as an opportunity to educate and excite visitors coming to Lovango about the importance of healthy coral reefs and what they can do to help rescue, renew and care for the reefs. 

Visitors will be able to snorkel the waters right off our beaches and get a firsthand look at the underwater research and regeneration of the reefs!   Underwater signage will help guide and educate snorkelers about what is happening within each of the research sites. 

Scuba Divers in Lovango Bay

Zone 1 - Rescue​

Underwater structures will be installed to encourage fast-growing species of coral (like Elkhorn or Staghorn) to develop in the shape of our name, LOVANGO! The team from UVI will check in monthly to monitor the progress. 

 

Zone 2 - Rescue​

The Research Zone will be an area where experimental out plantings will be monitored by underwater sensors. A snorkel trail of underwater signs will point visitors towards important aspects of the coral reef. Surface buoys will indicate safe swimming areas.

The Restored Zone will be an area of concentrated out planting with no research monitoring. The research group from UVI is working to restore this area’s Elkhorn and Staghorn coral.
