Giant Corals: Map the Giants project

Giant Corals: an ambitious program for studying monumental corals.

Discover Giant Corals with Map the Giants, a project by MaRHE Center, University of Milano Bicocca. We’re mapping the largest coral colonies in the world, starting from the Maldives, to reveal their resilience to environmental changes,  turn them into marine monuments, a new symbol of marine conservation.

Whether you’re a tourist, marine biologist, diver, community member, or fisherman, you can help us find them. Giant corals, known as “mound corals” or “massive corals,” provide vital habitats for diverse marine life, offering shelter, food, and protection. Join us in this journey to map the oldest and greatest monumental corals in our oceans.
