Coral Reef Alliance focuses on reducing local stressors and keeping coral reefs healthy so they can adapt to climate change.
How much faster do our corals grow compared to natural colonies?
What is the average survivorship of outplanted corals?
What is the total linear extension of outplanted corals?
Diversity of coral species in the outplanted ecosystem
How many new species are living on the outplanted reef?
Coral spawning is an annual phenomenon during which corals of the same species synchronize the release of sperm and eggs (gametes) into the water column over several days following the full moon 🌚. The little white balls that look like snow are coral gametes! Natural spawning is a great sign of healthy corals, as they don't spawn when they are sick or stressed.
Scientific evidence is mounting that corals can adapt to the effects of climate change. Our research shows that if we keep corals healthy in strategic, ecologically connected networks, we can create the conditions under which evolution can help rescue reefs if global carbon emissions are reduced.
We help diverse local communities protect coral reefs and chart their own sustainable futures.
Our conservation efforts around the world are supported by a dedicated, brilliant team.
Coral Reef Alliance focuses their resources in three main areas: local conservation, coral science and coral education. This is a breakdown for how this organization distributes their funds.
Clean water is vital for coral reefs and humans. Around the world, wastewater and polluted runoff cause severe damage to coral reefs. We utilize science-based conservation strategies to ensure coral reefs have the clean water they need and to protect our coastal environments for people and wildlife.Learn more
Overfishing endangers reefs. When reefs are overfished, reef systems can quickly collapse, and the fish stocks that depend on the reefs can in turn collapse. We develop and implement conservation strategies to protect coral reef ecosystems from the harmful effects of overfishing.Learn more
