Coral Restoration Foundation is nonprofit organization committed to creating restoration programs and offshore nurseries that aims at protecting threatened coral species. The organization uses leading restoration techniques to save the corals that are exposed to grave danger of becoming extinct.
With the help of volunteers, divers, scientists, community groups and public aquariums, the foundation has recorded a great success in saving corals and ensuring that the future generation will also be able to enjoy the many benefits awarded by this incredible ecosystem.
My interest in saving corals started a couple of years ago when I decided to visit The Great Barrier Reef in Australia. This was a memorable experience and while everything about it was incredibly amazing, the trip was also a little saddening for me. What really made me sad is to see that some parts of the Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef system in the world, were dying. We were able to see that some of the reef was bleached out completely while others were being dominated by algae.
I was really concerned about this which led me to start thinking of what I could do to contribute to saving corals to ensure that both the present and future generation benefits from them. This was how I decided to start Savingcorals.com to support the noble work that Coral Restoration Foundation was doing in protecting and saving corals and marine life.
One of the main goals of Coral Restoration Foundation is to educate the public about corals and ensure that they understand the need to protect and restore them. The organization strongly believes in community involvement in restoring coral reefs for the future generation. Various educational programs are organized in efforts of imparting knowledge and awareness to the society in general about corals and the need to preserve them.
Coral Restoration Foundation develops affordable and effective strategies aimed at protecting and restoring coral reefs. The organization trains and empowers other people with a similar interest to implement the strategies in their local coastal communities. The organization is results oriented and is engaged in actively growing and restoring threatened coral species as well as enhancing reproductive output to stimulate natural recovery of damaged corals and marine systems.
Coral Restoration Foundation has diving programs as well which help at encouraging divers of all skill levels and ages to get involved actively in coral restoration. A large team of energetic and hardworking volunteers have played a major role towards the success that the organization enjoys today.
Coral Restoration Foundation collaborates closely with other organizations to ensure that the strategies they develop are implemented globally. In addition to this, the organization also encourages coastal communities to initiate their own actions to manage coral reefs and marine resources in order to yield the best results possible.
There are various volunteer opportunities availed by Coral Restoration Foundation in their efforts of enhancing their capacity and capabilities of saving corals. If you have a passion in saving corals, you can participate in one of the many programs under the umbrella of Coral Restoration Foundation and you will surely make a difference in protecting this greatly threatened ecosystem.
