Coral reefs—also known as the rainforests of the sea—are one of the most diverse and productive ecosystems in the world. Despite occupying less than one percent of the ocean, more than 25% of all marine species call the reef their home. These ecosystems are fragile, however, as not only do they grow slower than rising seawater level, they also suffer breakage easily from more intense storms in the tropics. As 75% of the world’s reefs are under high to critical levels of threat, efforts to rehabilitate corals are crucial – now more than ever!

But what can we do to help broken reefs recover?​​

Most rehabilitation efforts have revolved around installing artificial reefs of all shapes and sizes on the seafloor – but there is so much potential to help corals mend themselves beyond just providing them with artificial substrate!
The word ‘pulih’ in the Malay language means to heal and restore damage.

​With Project PULIH, we join the race to save reefs by focusing on three different aspects of rehabilitation.

Project PULIH is funded by the University of Malaya’s Interdisciplinary Impact-Oriented Research Grant for its work on coral reef recuperation, regeneration, and resilience (2019 – 2021).

We acknowledge our primary partners – Rawa Island Resort and OrcaNation – for providing logistical support, dive facilities, general assistance, and a shared vision for Conservation.
