Our boat operator has now suspended operations until further notice and most citizen scientists have deferred to Maldives 2021 (or some to other 2021 expeditions). So our Maldives coral reef expedition has followed suit and joined the ranks of expeditions with no citizen science element in 2020 (see a previous post for details).
All citizen science elements are deferred to 2021. The 2020 dates for the expedition have come offline and the 2021 dates are now online. Plans for continuing the research work through a local mini expedition are on our coronavirus appeal page. Please contribute to this if you can.
