Solomon Islands

The Living Ocean Foundation Global Reef Expedition concludes its 2014 research mission schedule in the Solomon Islands. Research here contains four main components: (1) To collect detailed information about what lives on the reef; (2) To acquire high-resolution 360- degree panoramic imagery of the reefs via our partnership with Catlin Seaview Survey; (3) To make high resolution habitat maps of shallow marine areas round the islands; and (4) To measure what is stressing the coral and how resilient the coral is to those stresses. During this research mission we are working with Oceanwatch, a local NGO that has successfully created community based MPAs in the Solomon Islands.
