Coral reefs FAQ
Why is protecting coral reefs important?
Preserving coral reefs is essential as they act as a buffer for shorelines and coastal communities, create habitats for marine organisms, and provide an economic value of approximately $16.1 billion annually under healthy conditions. Coral reefs also play an important role in marine biodiversity, with an estimated quarter of all marine species dependent on them for their habitat. They benefit directly or indirectly the livelihoods of around 1 billion people worldwide.
How does coral restoration work?
The projects we fund have a primary focus on coral restoration. Funds go mainly to transplanting corals and regenerating reefs degraded by dynamite fishing in the area, as well as improving the living conditions of the populations that depend on the reefs.
Where is your impact done?
Our partners use various methods for coral reef restoration, such as coral propagation, coral transplantation, and coral gardening. Coral propagation involves growing new coral colonies in a controlled environment before transplanting them to the reef. Coral transplantation involves taking small pieces of coral from a healthy reef and attaching them to a damaged area of the reef. Finally, coral gardening involves growing coral in nurseries and then transplanting them to the reef.
How can I be sure that habitat is protected effectively?
Our coral reef preservation efforts are done in Asia, Europe, and Central America. You can scroll to the beginning of the page to find our locations map. We aim to expand our locations of action in many different countries as coral reef restoration impacts humanity’s efforts at a social and environmental level significantly, apart from the importance of preserving them for the wellbeing and heritage of our marine ecosystem.
