Back in May 2020, with the help of Fragments of Hope, the Hol Chan Team had set up a coral nursery inside Hol Chan with the hopes to save some coral species, Dendrogyra cylindrus (Pillar Coral) that are vulnerable to the Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease (SCTLD) as well as some less vulnerable species, Acropora Cervicornis (Staghorn Coral). On Friday August 6th 2021, the Hol Chan team conducted some maintenance at the nursery. At present only a few Pillar corals are alive in the nursery and are being monitored for any signs of disease, while A. cervicornis are doing very good.
