Your Donation Has an Impact

Thank you for helping us change the trajectory for coral reefs and our planet. We are so grateful for you, the individuals, communities, and partners who have come together to save coral reefs.

As you know, these colorful, diverse ecosystems that are full of life—are also in trouble. Your generous support has advanced cutting-edge science, supported community engagement, and fueled programs that reduce marine threats. You’ve minimized overfishing and reduced the impacts of wastewater pollution. You’ve given scientists the resources to treat coral disease, supported voices that advocate for real climate solutions, and stood up for the future of our planet.

Thank you for protecting coral reefs—we simply couldn’t do this vital work without you.

How You Protected Coral Reefs in 2022

Major Water Quality Issues Plaguing Coral Reefs Today

Can you imagine being constantly forced to drink, swim, and bathe in dirty, polluted water?

Coral Restoration Alone Likely Won’t Be Enough to Save Coral Reefs. That’s Why We Focus on Reducing Marine Threats

Why don’t we focus on coral restoration?

It’s called an aquaponics system, and it combines aquaculture and hydroponics to raise fish and grow organic fruits and vegetables.  An aquaponics system relies on a symbiotic relationship between fish and plants. Fish waste fertilizes… Continue Reading →

If you are like me, a person who is very sad about coral reefs bleaching, don’t be sad. We can always fix it. We can always make speeches and signs and go protest. We can also support organizations that do research on coral reefs like the Coral Reef Alliance. If we do all of this, then our planet isn’t destroyed and we can save our Planet Earth, our home where we live.
