Global Coralition: Saving our coral reefs

We have lost 50% of our coral reefs in the last 30 years.

At the current rate, it is estimated 90% of our coral reefs will be gone by 2050.

Coral reefs support 25% of all marine life.

They protect our coastlines and provide food, medicine and livelihood to over a billion people.

Without them, we may have a rippling economic and ecosystem collapse.

 

Incredible efforts around the world are being taken to restore these vital resources.

The Global Coralition is a project to unite Art, Science and Communities to scale these efforts around the world through collaboration.

We create large scale sculptures that are deployed into the ocean to become sculptural restoration sites; raising awareness and creating new surface for coral growth. We work closely with local artists and youth to activate local participation, education and change.

We unite local officials, restoration groups, dive schools, scientists and NGOs to develop plans to advance regional restoration through science and collaboration. We advocate land-based coral farming techniques.


January 1st,  we embark to Dominican Republic to launch our next project.

We will be building a large scale sculpture, while partnering with Mariposa school for girls and INSPIRE school for boys for marine education and local engagement.

We will work closely with local restoration groups, NGOs, dive school and local officials to develop first stages of the regions first land-based coral farm.

Thank you for helping bring this to life and investing in a future with healthy coral reefs.

See our last sculpture Mazu, she is surrounded by 36 pyramids holding 5000 coral transplants. She is part of a one square mile artificial reef site in Koh Tao, Thailand.
