Coral Reef Surveys

During many projects from 1996-2005, TRACC completed many coastal surveys and many coral reef surveys using both Reef check and GCRMN methods.  The information has been summarised here to give an overall status of the species, coral reefs, impacts and coastal zone issues of Sarawak and Sabah.
