The Seychelles in some areas lost up to 90 percent of its coral reefs in 1998 in an environmental event known as bleaching, where coral in warming waters expel the colorful algae that live within their skeletons and, without their nutrients, starve. Another bleaching event occurred in 2016 after the reefs had partly recovered, David Rowat said, chairman of the Marine Conservation Society Seychelles.In one, more than 50,000 coral fragments have been nurtured and transplanted by a local charity, Nature Seychelles, in what the organization calls the world's largest coral restoration program.About 2,800 kilometers away off the island of Curieuse, the Seychelles National Park Authority has been moving corals grown in another rope nursery.
