3D CORAL REEFS OF KIRITIMATI
See what we see underwater - in 3D!!
Our team partners with John Burns (University of Hawaii, Gates Coral Lab) to capture 3D images of the coral reefs we study on Kiritimati. We can use these 3D images to determine coral abundance and habitat complexity - both of which are very important for supporting healthy fish populations on the reef. We are currently working to create 3D images for each of our survey regions on Kiritimati - stay tuned for more exciting 3D imagery coming soon!!
Reef from the Bay of Wrecks - site 19 is in our very low fishing pressure group
Reef from Vaskes Bay - site 5 is in our low fishing pressure group
Reef right next to the villages - site 32 and 27 are in our very high fishing pressure group
