The project was conceptualized by BC Choudhury after which the WTI conducted initial experiments at the proposed site for conservation of the coral species that succeeded. The success of the experiment at the proposed site signals that it is fit to develop as coral garden.

The project will be developed at the Mithapur Coral Garden and in the process reeds will be separated into various sections so that all coral species can be made available at one place. The Mithapur Coral Garden will house nearly all coral species that are found in Gulf of Kutch.
