Fijian student sponsored by the French Embassy in Fiji worked on corals at the CRIOBE station

Shubha Shalini Singh stayed at the CRIOBE station in December 2014 and January 2015 to study coral reef health state. Her stay was sponsored by the French Embassy in Fiji. Coral ecology was her main focus as she was given the opportunity by Dr. David Lecchini to assist Antoine Puisay, in his research and work on corals.

Her project had two main objectives:

    1. Identifying the factors affecting the distribution and the health of the genus Pocillopora on the reefs of Moorea
    2. Identifying the different species of Pocillopora found on the reefs around Moorea
