Coral is being moved hundreds of kilometres and replanted at new dive sites, in an attempt to boost tourism in Aqaba, Jordan. The new reefs are growing into visually stunning underwater worlds that are luring divers from all over the globe. Moiz Khan, a diving tourist from Pakistan, floats through a colourful, underwater world in the Red Sea. However unlike most other reefs, which have remained in place for thousands of years, this one didn’t exist just six years ago. The Gulf of Aqaba, located 331 kilometres south of the Jordanian capital, Amman, is home to an extensive fringing reef and hundreds of species of marine life. The water clarity is exceptional due to lack of river discharge and low rainfall.
