Working with people around the world—from fishermen to government leaders, divers to scientists, Californians to Fijians—the Coral Reef Alliance protects our most valuable and threatened ecosystem. We lead holistic conservation programs that improve coral reef health and resilience and are replicated across the globe. Join us!

On September 20th, CORAL will be honoring our 20th anniversary with a special evening celebrating reefs and the power of community conservation. Mark your calendars to join us at San Francisco’s acclaimed California Academy of Sciences for a night of delicious food and drink, conversation with our international field team, and the awarding of the first CORAL Conservation Prize to an individual who has demonstrated extraordinary achievement in driving forward local coral reef conservation efforts.

After more than a decade in downtown San Francisco, we—like many other nonprofits—moved our headquarters to Oakland, California for a fantastic new space. As of September 1, our new address is: 1330 Broadway, Suite 1602, Oakland, CA 94612 and our new phone number is 510.370.0500. Please update your address books, and if you donate to CORAL directly through your bank, please give them the new address so your donations can reach us. Thank you—we look forward to showing off the new space soon!
