Project to restore coral reef commences

Navy Commander Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva initiated a project to restore reefs in the Northern Naval Command on July 4 off the shores of Kankasanthurei.

The project will conserve the coral reefs which were ruined for various reasons. Naval personnel planted 11 reef balls with replanted corals initially. Northern Naval Area Commander Rear Admiral Kapila Samaraweera monitors the project regularly to ensure well growth of the coral nursery.

A number of coral reef restoration projects were initiated across the island recently.
