Active coral reef restoration involves all of our following activities:
1) coral gardening, 2) artificial reef placement, 3) coral fragment out planting onto artificial reefs, 4) marine protected area establishment. Each phase plays a crucial role in the process of restoring coral reefs.
REEFolution has developed 3-month program for which local community members can apply. During this time period, they learn practical diving skills (PADI Open Water, Advanced Open Water, Coral Reef Restoration Specialty) and receive marine animal ecology classes. If they succeed, they are offered a paid job opportunity at one of our projects. Through intensive community involvement, we enhance long-term social-ecological impact.
REEFolution believes that scientific research provides the basis for preservation, management and restoration of coral reefs. Our scientific research focuses on a few main topics.
To leave a long-lasting impact on local communities, our REEF Rangers develop marine environmental education programs aimed to raise awareness on primary and secondary schools.
