Where We Work
We’re located in a South Caribbean cluster of islands
called Bocas Del Toro, in Panama.
It’s beautiful here. Coral reefs, seagrasses, mangroves, Bocas Del Toro is a natural laboratory to study evolution, climate change and human impact on Caribbean ecosystems. These islands face a series of interconnected and serious problems contributing to an ecosystem in dire need of action.
Where to Find Us
Caribbean Coral Restoration Nursery is located on Isla Solarte in Bocas Del Toro, Bocas Del Toro Providence, Panama.
Bocas Del Toro is made up of several smaller islands that create the larger archipelago. We have multiple installation sites, collection sites, and potential installation sites scoped throughout the region.

Community Build Event: Pargo Point
We kicked off our 2019 with a Community Build Event in partnership with another important organization here in Bocas – Floating Doctors. Together, we hosted an education and coral structure build event with teenagers from the community.
Over the course of a few days – we introduced our event attendees to the process of coral restoration, building and curing the structures, and then installing them nearby where the local community can witness the transformation from “underwater desert” to a thriving fish habitat.
Being in the water is always the best part!
