In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines in late 2013, many of the coral reefs in Concepcion were decimated.  The amount of live coral reef was reduced from 85 per cent to 15 per cent, significantly reducing the amount of fish available and destroying the livelihoods of poor fishing communities. To combat this, we worked with the government to instigate a coral transplantation programme. This is helping to restore the coral to previous levels.
