Coral? upped, dead and muddy


Labrador - Sunday night 14 Oct - before the nemo dat was seen saw the passing of a large coral(?) of some type (anyone know what it is from the picture??). It was overturned and rather heavy. It seemed to have been broken off from it's base. As you can see, it was also covered up with lots of sediment.

Guess that dredging is taking it's toll...or maybe the sedimentation is a seasonal thing?

I saw something similar when I was at Labrador in August.

It looks like it might be the same dead coral? It was quite large.

Sigh.

I hope things will recover once they finish the work on Labrador.
