Coral Vita restores threatened reefs by growing resilient corals and transplanting them into degraded sites.

Over half a billion people rely on coral reefs for food, coastal protection, and income. But reefs are rapidly dying due to climate change, pollution, and overfishing. Up to 50% have died since the 1970s, and 75% are projected to die by 2050. By establishing a global network of land-based farms to grow diverse corals resilient to changing ocean conditions,
Coral Vita helps protect the communities, industries, and nations that depend on healthy reefs.

Coral reef degradation is a global problem. The above photo of Carysfort Reef in the Florida Keys demonstrates how rapidly coral health has decline in just the past several decades. Today, 95% of Keys' reef are gone. Photo credit: Phil Dustan
