Coral nurseries are a vital component of AIEF’s restoration efforts.


In keeping with AIEF’s goals to restore local reefs and protect endangered coral species, we have established multiple coral nurseries in the area surrounding Amiga Island. These shallow-water, protected nurseries provide the ideal setting for coral fragments to grow and thrive.

To date we currently operate three A-frame style nurseries with 14 frames total, and 1 coral tree nursery containing six trees. Between our four nurseries, the foundation currently has over 1,300 growing coral fragments
