Restoring the world’s most resilient coral reefs

Coral reefs are the epicenter of global marine life. They host 30% of marine biodiversity worldwide while occupying less than 0,2% of the ocean floors (NOAA 2019).

Restoring coral reefs is a key solution to protect and preserve a critically important and endangered wildlife, while strengthening the adaptation of coastal communities to the climate crisis.

By prioritizing the world’s most resilient coral reefs, we aim at enhancing the natural resilience of coral reefs and secure the benefits they provide to coastal communities (food security, livelihoods, jobs linked to tourism and fisheries and coastal protection).

Methodology

Each of our restoration sites is located in the heart of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), where human-based impacts on marine habitats are mitigated and where coral reefs are the object of a long term scientific monitoring.

Coral nurseries, made in sustainable and locally-made materials, are used to reconnect patches of degraded reefs together, in order to restore their resilience.

We work with local scientific divers and communities to respect the natural genetic diversity of the reefs, and ensure the monthly scientific monitoring of restored coral reefs on the long term.
