Sun Coral Nursery

Sun Marine Research Centre at Long Beach Hotel is developing the first micro fragmenting land-based coral farm on the Island of Mauritius in collaboration with University of Mauritius and Dr David Vaughan from Plan a Million Coral Foundation, Florida, USA. The three main elements of the project as a business case are: • Coral reef restoration – Actively restoring coral reef, eco-tourism conservation • Science – The technique is guided by research and collaboration. • Education - we are engaging and empowering the community. Using this method, Dr David Vaughan has proven that he can grow a coral in 1-2 years that would normally have taken 15-25 years. Through this innovative technique we can regrow our reefs at rates 25-40x faster than they occur naturally! This has a huge impact on the rate at which we can save and recover the lost reefs!

Towards shaping our common future

This project describes how deeply we are rooted in our legacy, while also exploring new frontiers in sustainability, not only in our operations but across value chain as well.
