Who We Are
We are cultivators and guardians of flourishing ocean ecosystems.
Stationed on the island of Solarte, in Bocas Del Toro, Panama, we are doing our best to advance reef restoration, rebuild diverse fish habitats, and work in tandem with like-minded organizations to help protect and rebuild our ecosystem.
What We Hold Dear
We insist on doing our part to make the world a better place.
We consider our progress a tide that raises all boats, not just our own.
Our impact is measured by more than recovered reefs and healthy underwater fish habitat.
Our mission requires that we address the concept of coral reef recovery through a holistic lens. Ocean ecosystems include the management and protection of resources, the quality of life for the plant, animal and human species that live within that ecosystem. This means that our organization is more than just “putting coral structures” in the water.
Caribbean Coral Restoration Priorities
Love for the sea begins here.
At the heart of our organization is a profound love and appreciation for the amazing world under the surface of the sea.
In witnessing the systemic imbalance where we live, our love for the sea became an organization intent on taking action.
We’re a team of indispensable volunteers, generous experts, astounding apprentices, a motivated board of directors and administration support system that continues to keep pressing our organization ever forward.
Our Humble Accomplishments
Underwater nursery structures where small coral clones are protected so that they can grow.
Seven different reef-building coral species flourishing in the nursery.
Land Based Tanks
With the on-land tanks up and running, we can collect additional, "higher maintenance" coral species.
Collected from 8 different sites around the Archipelago, our clones serve as the "mothers" of the nursery.
Reef installations, shallow-water nursery cages, coral trees and protected nursery space.
We've built over 200 artificial reef structures installed on the ocean floor.
