VISION

INSPIRE INNOVATION AND COLLABORATION AMONG PROJECTS THAT RECONCILE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT WITH NATURAL SYSTEMS IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY

STRATEGY

WE CREATE PROJECTS THAT CAN BE EVALUATED AND ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO THE FOLLOWING OBJECTIVES:
 

  • CONTRIBUTE TO THE PROTECTION AND ADAPTATION OF COASTAL CITIES AND ECOSYSTEMS THROUGH RESTORATION AND REINFORCEMENT OF THE CORAL REEF AND ITS INTERCONNECTED SYSTEMS

  • CREATE SCALABLE, REPLICABLE, AND SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS THAT USE ART AND STORYTELLING TO SPREAD A CORAL MESSAGE
     

  • PROMOTE AWARENESS AND DEVELOP FACILITIES THAT INSPIRE ACTION IN THE FACE OF OUR CLIMATE EMERGENCY

The Problem

80% of the Meso-American Reef is dead

Traditional tourism contributes to coral reef loss

No new corals are being born in the wild

Marine conservation is inadequately financed

YOU CAN BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

LOCAL CONNECTION TO THE ENVIRONMENT

SAVE CORAL

OUR METHOD

WE USE AN EMERGING GLOBAL PRACTICE CALLED MICRO-FRAGMENTATION AND ASSISTED EVOLUTION TO GROW RESISTANT CORALS AND RESTORE REEFS

Each coral tank can grow ~ 1,000 coral colonies each year

LOCATION: CORAL VITA, GRAND BAHAMAS

CORALS GROWN IN NURSERIES (LABORATORIES) CAN SURVIVE THE WARMER TEMPERATURES OF THE FUTURE. CORALS CAN HYBRIDIZE, WHICH ALSO INCREASES NATURAL GENETIC DIVERSITY

MICRO-FRAGMENTATION ACCELERATES CORAL GROWTH UP TO 50 TIMES ITS NATURAL RATES

HEALTHY CORAL IS A VITAL PART OF COASTAL ECOSYSTEMS, WHICH IN TURN CONTRIBUTES TO A VIBRANT ECONOMY

THE ABILITY TO GROW DIVERSE CORALS WILL MEET THE NEEDS OF A SPECIFIC LOCAL ENVIRONMENT

DATA FROM THE LABORATORY CAN PROVIDE SCIENTISTS AND POLICY MAKERS WITH IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE LOCAL ENVIRONMENT

LOCATION: AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF MARINE SCIENCE

Beyond Coral Foundation (USA) and Beyond Coral México are partner organizations whose ultimate goal is the protection, conservation and restoration of reef systems through strategies that use technology, art, dissemination of science and cultural integration.
