World Reef Day 2020

World Reef Day is June 1st every year, kicking off World Oceans Month - all of June.  

This year, through the power of social media, we’re taking World Reef Day fully virtual while we all stay safe at home.  The goal is to fund raise during all of June for four incredible NGO beneficiaries: Coral Gardeners, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii,  Mālama_Pūpūkea_Waimea and Surfrider Oahu Chapter.  These groups are dedicated to reef research & preservation, conservation, beach clean-ups and more.

Please join us in supporting their efforts by making a donation here from June 1st - June 30th in honor of World Reef Day and World Oceans Month! 

100% of your donation will be distributed to each of these beneficiaries equally to help fund their critical work.  Please visit for more info. 

Let us all be inspired!
On June 1 and continued during the week of June 8-12 on @RawElementsUSA’s Instagram, a schedule of engaging conversations and virtual experiences will take place with experts, activists and thought leaders – from government officials, scientists and hospitality leaders to diving experts, surf pros and musicians – each with a shared passion for sustainability and ocean conservation.  For full schedule of events and more information visit:
