Originally founded in 1994, Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) is a world-renowned organization with a history of successfully working with local communities around the world to protect coral reefs. Our mission is simple but profound: to save the world’s coral reefs. Despite recent declines in coral reef health, research shows that corals can adapt to changing conditions. To promote their ability to adapt, CORAL works to reduce direct threats to reefs—including overfishing, poor water quality, and habitat damage—thereby helping corals survive, grow, and reproduce. We specialize in uniting diverse stakeholders and partners to adopt practices and behaviors that restore and protect reef ecosystems. Our work is currently active in the Mesoamerican Reef and Hawai`i.
