Ongoing Restoration Projects
If your organization is restoring reefs in a country that hosts one of our farms, Coral Vita can supply corals for your projects. There are potential opportunities to maximize the value of donor funding, as the money you raise can be spent entirely on purchasing and installing corals, rather than constructing and maintaining nurseries.
We can increase the species resiliency and diversity of your projects, enabling you to obtain the bouldering corals critical for improving the ecological functionality of reefs. As well, there may be opportunities to leverage your installation experience for other projects that Coral Vita supplies. Ultimately, we can form lasting partnerships that advance our shared goal of protecting and preserving our world's coral reefs.
Tremendous credit is due to the scientists, community activists, and environmental organizations that work to protect coral reefs and helped to establish the viability of coral farming. There are many pioneers, innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, and champions of coral reef restoration. Although we can't thank them all, we'd like to show special appreciation to the Mote Marine Laboratory, the Gates Coral Lab, Dr. Baruch Rinkevich, Dr. Austin Bowden-Kirby, Dr. Ruby Moothien-Pillay, Professor Alasdair Edwards, Ken Nedimeyer, Andrew Ross, Tom Goreau, Lauretta Burke, and Eleanor Phillips. Alongside community-led projects spanning from Fiji to the Philippines to Indonesia to Mauritius to Puerto Rico, your advice, efforts, and inspiration helped make Coral Vita a reality. We are excited to join the collaborative spirit that drives coral reef restoration.
