CORAL partners with local nonprofits, businesses, governments, schools, and others to deepen community members’ and tourists’ understanding of coral reef ecosystems and the threats they face. We produce educational materials for hotel guests, and materials for our many marine tourism operator partners to engage more reef advocates. In many communities in which we work, we support students and teachers studying coral reefs and marine conservation.
We also work with communities to establish voluntary standards for sustainable marine recreation, detailed guidelines for reef-friendly conduct while diving, snorkeling, and boating. Read more.
