WHAT WE DO

The REEFolution foundation will restore and create coral reefs together with local fishermen, starting in Kenya. The resources functioning as their main income, namely fishery and tourism, will be conserved. REEFolution will initiate, stimulate, provide advice and finance projects regarding coral reef restoration and creation. This covers the following activities: 

 

Coral reef restoration

REEFolution is setting up and financing coral reef restoration programmes in developing countries. Through education and conservation efforts natural coral reefs will be sustained. Besides, new coral reefs will be created to reduce the pressure on natural reefs at risk and increase the coral reef cover. To create these new reefs, coral nurseries will be set up.

Livelihood improvement

Local communities will be involved in the projects, to ensure local awareness and create job opportunities in conservation efforts and tourism. Besides, coral reef conservation and local contribution will assure sustainable fish harvest resulting in a healthy fish stock for many years.

Research

The REEFolution foundation is extensively working together with researchers and students of Wageningen University. Through ecological studies, coral damage will be assessed and potential restoration sites chosen. Different factors that will influence the coral growth will also be studied. But besides ecological studies, social studies are planned to be performed, like setting up education programmes and training programmes for local conservationists.

WHO WE ARE

The team of the REEFolution foundation comprises professional coral researchers, university students and enthusiastic nature conservationists. All efforts are voluntarily performed. The board is currently comprised of:
