As a result of global warming and human impacts, “over 50 percent of the world’s coral reefs have died in the last 30 years and up to 90 percent may die within the next century—very few pristine coral reefs still exist.” (Secore.org, 2021)
To turn the tide, the Dutch REEFolution Foundation (PBO-status) collaborates together with Wageningen University and Research Centre by restoring coral reefs. We educate local communities, actively restore coral reefs and share research insights. Through training and certification of local community members, we enhance long-term continuation of sustainable coral reef management. We do this by actively involving the local community in the practice of coral reef restoration.
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; learn a man how to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime.”
After a certain time period, we aim to leave behind a biodiverse ecosystem and a well-prepared local community which will continue sustainable coral reef management in the long-run. Using our succes formula, our projects could become a blueprint to other coral restoration organizations around the world.
Together with local communities, we aim to protect and restore coral reefs. Our ultimate goal is to kickstart the work and leave sustainable community-based coral reef management in the long-run.
