Get Involved with Coral Conservation

Why did we start our coral restoration program?

  • Restore corals damaged by severe storms like Tropical Cyclone Yasa in Dec 2020

  • Increase climate resilience of the coral reefs by selecting temperature resistant corals

  • Involve local people in conservation & protection of their reefs

What are we doing?
