Abstract

In August 2009, eight large Porites corals were relocated prior to dredging works at Cocos (Keeling) Islands. In March 2020, relocated colonies were found to have survived and grown, demonstrating that large Porites colonies growing on unconsolidated substrates can be relocated successfully if moved swiftly to a similar habitat to their source.
