Restoring one of the most important ecosystem in the world
Because Corals are the rainforest of the Ocean
Corals are not only beautiful, as an ecosystem they nurture more than 25% of the world’s marine species. Clown fishes, gobies, foureye butterflyfishes and thousands of other species depend on corals for nutrients, but also for shelter and habitat. If corals disappear, a whole ecosystem would collapse with them.
Because 850 million humans depend on them
One-eighth of the world’s population rely on the fisheries for their livelihoods and to feed their families. Coral Reefs even save humans lives, as they offer natural coastal protection against storms or hurricanes. They also attract millions of tourists, divers and snorkelers. Because of their impact on tourism, corals support local populations.
Because we need to act right now
Ocean warming, acidification and destructive fishing have already destroyed 50% of the worldwide coral population over the last 30 years. The Reefs at Risk study reveals that unless action is taken now, 90% of all reefs will be threatened by 2030, and all of Earth’s coral reefs could be completely gone by 2050.

Coral planted in real life
Our goal: Plant 1 million coral with you!
The recipe to plant corals
1. Identify the good spot
With scientists, we identify which reef we have to restore depending both on the impact it would have on biodiversity and the chances of survival of the outplanted corals.
