One day (2015-1-12) was spent surveying and sampling the reefs of the Uchelbeluu and Rebotel region, which are located on opposite sides of the main island chain.

Sites PaUc07-08 can be found to the map’s right (east). Rebotel Reef (see next image) is located to the west of  Pincher Reef.  High-resolution habitat maps will be available on the Living Oceans Foundation’s world reef map  website  in late 2019.
