Each year the Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) hosts our annual CORAL Conservation Prize Event, where we honor a coral reef conservation leader working to save coral reefs. This time of year is special to CORAL, as staff from Hawai’i, Honduras, Indonesia and Fiji are flown to our headquarters in Oakland, California to celebrate the Prize winner and participate in our annual staff retreat, CORAL Summit.
This year’s Summit focused on developing the potential of the organization to fulfill our mission to save coral reefs. Staff enjoyed detailed storytelling from each regional site, team building exercises, a trip to the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito and evenings by the bonfire. We look forward to seeing how our organization grows and further accomplishes our mission.
