Dear all,

There is a reef currently threatened by a reclamation project off the coast 
of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. We are considering ways to 
translocate as many colonies as possible several kilometers away (rather 
than have it turned into land). I was wondering if anyone could help with 
advise on techniques for transportation.

Thanks for your consideration.
