Cozumel Reef Transplant Project Remains Intact After Hurricane Delta

Representatives from the Foundation of Parks & Museums Cozumel (FPMC) recently reported that the reef transplant project – located inside Chankanaab Park – remains intact and in good condition despite the passage of Hurricane Delta nearly two weeks ago.


More than 1,000 coral reef fragments were installed in 2017, on structures installed along the Chankanaab coastline.  Biologists from the Center for Conservation and Environmental Education (Centro de Conservacion FPMC) , lead by Antonio Chale Chim, have been overseeing a coral ecosystem restoration program since it was originally installed in a joint project with the Oceanus AC.
