Coral Triangle
Reflections on Halmahera
By Rod Salm

The Nature Conservancy in the Coral Triangle - Reflections on Halmahera
excerpt from above:
Quote:
I have left the Halmahera team with heavy heart but a head full of happy memories. Chief amongst these is the great team of Indonesian and international participants whose energy and enthusiasm, curiosity and collegiality are unflagging. And we have discovered wondrous things, including new species: at least two fishes, one mantis shrimp, a potential new sea cucumber, and possibly new corals.

We have discovered reefs in great condition, supporting exquisite coral gardens and corals ranging in age from youngsters less than a couple of years old to others exceeding 1,000 years in age. We have seen damage extensive damage but also vigorous recovery. Yes, they have been hit hard, but they are bouncing back too.
