WELCOME TO THE BIGGEST CORAL REEF RESTORATION EFFORT ON THE PLANET

We are actively restoring coral reefs on a massive scale, educating others on the importance of our oceans, and using science to further coral research and coral reef monitoring techniques. 

 

We work to support the reefs’ natural recovery processes through the large-scale cultivation, outplanting, and monitoring of genetically diverse, reef-building corals.

 

We engage and empower the community to join us to save our planet’s coral reefs with dive programs, educational activities, scientific collaborations, and outreach.

RESTORATION

WE ARE ACTIVELY RESTORING CORAL REEFS ON A MASSIVE SCALE

 

We grow corals in offshore Coral Tree™ Nurseries, and then rehome them on carefully selected sites. 

 

Since 2007, we have returned more than 130,000 critically endangered corals back to Florida's Coral Reef.

 

Many of these corals have now grown into thriving colonies with the ability to spawn, kick-starting the reefs' natural process of recovery.

SCIENCE

OUR APPROACH IS GUIDED BY RESEARCH AND COLLABORATION

 

We work with 415 coral genotypes across 11 species, to ensure that we are restoring the reefs' genetic diversity and resilience. 

 

We rigorously monitor our outplanted corals and use data to inform our strategic development. 

 

We collaborate with universities, aquariums, NGOs, and government agencies including NOAA and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

EDUCATION

WE ARE ENGAGING AND

EMPOWERING THE COMMUNITY 

 

Recreational Dive Programs let all ocean lovers make a difference.

 

Presentations at our Exploration Center can be tailored for any group. 

 

Our educational materials complement the National Curriculum.

 

Internships provide university-level students with vocational training and experience.
