On 29 May, DHI Singapore conducted a formal survey of the corals located at Sultan Shoal and the percentage of bleaching along the reef crest was found to be 11.8%. Two recent surveys that took place on 12 and 25 June indicated that the bleaching situation (6.2% and 9.7%) has remained generally unchanged. However, all transplanted colonies at Sisters’ Islands appeared to be okay.
