Coral nurseries to help restoration of reefs in American Samoa
10-02-2014 - RNZI.

A world specialist in coral reef restoration is teaching American Samoan villagers how to restore their coral reefs by building numerous coral nurseries using recyclable materials.

Dr Shari Shafir, a professor with Israel's Oranim Academic College of Education, developed a special nursery that can float.

He hopes the villagers in Leone will take what they have learned to other parts of the territory.
