A coral health chart

This is a coral bleaching recording chart on board the Swiss flagged vessel, Fleur de Passion which is circumnavigating the world exploring its most important and threatened marine regions. The Fleur de Passion is the flagship vessel of the Ocean Mapping Expedition which is on a four-year sailing voyage around the world to observe, understand and map the state of human impact on the oceans and raise awareness about sustainable development. The Ocean Mapping Expedition aims to contribute to a better and greater awareness of the challenges posed by human impact on our oceans and to reflect on our relationship with the sea through scientific, socio-educational and cultural programs.
