Operation Crayweed

In Sydney, Australia, over 70 km of underwater forests disappeared sometime during the 1980s.

Operation Crayweed is a good news story - restoring crayweed on reefs where it once flourished and re-establishing this essential habitat and food source for Sydney’s coastal marine biodiversity.

CIA face recognition technology... underwater

We’re getting a lot more information from our imagery than we first thought we could. Our image analysis software has similar precision to humans but so much faster. 3400% faster to be exact.

Clown Triggerfish

Did you know: Triggerfish can "trigger" their fins to extend in order to lock themselves into holes, crevices, and other hiding spots.

This particular species is called the Clown Triggerfish, you can guess why...

XL Catlin Global Reef Record

Over the last few years we have been to over 20 countries, covered thousands of kilometres, and captured nearly a million panoramic images to create a baseline of coral reef health around the globe.

All of this important information is housed in our free online database - the XL Catlin Global Reef Record xlcatlinglobalreefrecord.org

The Reef the Size of Italy

The Great Barrier Reef covers an incredible 344,400 square kilometres. An area the size of Italy, it is more than twice the size of the next largest coral reef.

We will be returning to the reef this week, to collect imagery before the expected coral bleaching event and set up timelapse cameras.

Story
Tagline
The XL Catlin Seaview Survey is a global science and communication project - recording and revealing our rapidly changing oceans.
Introduction

The world’s reefs are in a dramatic state of decline - we’ve lost over 40% of corals over the last 50 years due to pollution, destructive fishing and climate change. According to the scientific community the decline is set to continue, it will affect 500 million people globally who rely on coral reefs for food, tourism income and coastal protection.

In response to this issue, the XL Catlin Seaview Survey is creating a baseline record of the world’s coral reefs, in high-resolution 360-degree panoramic vision. It will enable change to be clearly monitored over time and will help scientists, policy makers and the public at large to see and understand the issues reefs are facing and work out what needs to be done to best protect coral reefs now and into the future.

More from the project can be seen at http://catlinseaviewsurvey.com/
