The Maldives, famous for a beautiful underwater utopia & luxury resort hideaways. But not all is perfect for the picture perfect paradise. With pressures from global warming & increasingly acidic oceans, coral reefs in these popular holiday destinations are under further threat. Construction of resorts brings catastrophic destruction to the delicate ecosystem, on some islands they have been completely demolished. Reefs surrounding Kuda Huraa are given a helping hand. Biologists attach coral fragments to steel frames for re-growth. One day, they hope the islands reef will thrive once again.

Location: Maldives
