Play • 32 min

This podcast with Reefscapers' resident Marine biologist, Amélie Carraut, celebrates Reefscapers' mission to protect the ocean with their coral reef restoration projects in the Maldives and raise awareness about the importance of coral reefs.

As surfers, we all have a relationship with the reef. And in this episode, Amélie shares interesting details about them, their process of restoring corals, and how we can help their cause by adopting a coral frame. These coral frames are built & monitored by their team of marine biologists to follow the corals’ growth online, thanks to underwater photos taken every six months.

Amélie also shares her love for the ocean and how’s it like being and surfing in the Maldives.
