Choice A: Coral Reconstruction
Teams must ride speedboats to Khai Nai Island, where they must build a coral nursery out of pipes. Once complete, they must use a kayak to take the nursery and several coral fragments out to a buoy and set the nursery on the ocean floor, then set the coral fragments into the nursery.
