Invasive plant management in Chagos, and the goal of the 2016 CCTUS expedition scholarship

Biodiversity

The Chagos Archipelago contains some of the healthiest coral reefs and in The Great Chagos Bank, the largest coral atoll to be found on our planet. Scientists fear that half of the world’s coral reefs could be lost by 2025. It is essential to save them: hundreds of millions of people depend on healthy reefs in one way or another. Living reefs provide food, protect beaches from erosion, and form a treasure house of genetically diverse creatures and plants.
