“Over half of the world’s reefs are dead, and we are currently on track to lose over 90% by 2050. With coral reefs serving as the lifeblood for countless coastal communities and a quarter of all marine life, the threat of worldwide reef degradation is one of the gravest challenges we face today, ” Coral Vita’s invitation reads.

Whilst corals are grown for restoration, the flagship farm will also serve as a revenue-generating eco-tourism attraction and a hands-on marine learning center for local students and community members.

Following the completion of the pilot farm, Coral Vita looks to expand operations globally and establish large-scale coral farms in every country and territory with reefs to preserve these threatened ecosystems.
