Coral Vita

MISSION Coral Vita works to restore their world's dying and damaged reefs. By growing diverse and resilient corals and transplanting them into threatened reefs, they help preserve the ocean's biodiversity. In turn, they protect the prosperity and health of communities, industries, and nations that depend on reefs for coastal protection, food, and revenue. As a mission-driven company, Coral Vita is committed to reinvesting the majority of their profits into sustaining coral reefs. APPROACH Corals raised are native to the restoration site, shown to be more resilient to changing conditions such as warming and acidifying oceans, and provide critical functionality to the over reef ecosystem. The corals grown are used to revive and protect reef ecosystems, and their land-based farming model allows them to service the range of stakeholders reliant on healthy reefs. With global reef degradation already happening and widespread, people are now able to preserve these valuable resources for both present and future needs. ULTIMATE VISION At Coral Vita, they acknowledge that the best thing to do to protect coral reefs is to stop killing them. They strongly urge responsible parties to limit greenhouse gas emissions, reduce pollution and overfishing, and take other meaningful steps to eliminate threats to coral reef health. Yet they also recognize that the pace of degradation, coupled with the lack of sufficient positive action, demands adaptation solutions be implemented as mitigation measures continued to be pursued. That's why they are creating a global network of land-based coral farms. Doing so will enable clients around the world to have a ready-to-install supply of corals for all restoration needs. They aim to provide a means to sustain vital resources in spite of the ecological danger their planet faces. Coral Vita improves the livelihoods of those who depend on coral and aspires to enable a new generation to protect these reefs that will sustain their communities and nations well into the future. WHAT THEY DO Coral Vita restores reefs by growing and transplanting resilient corals. They restore reefs using a proven 5-step process: Assess target reef's health and water quality conditions Create a restoration plan, determining which coral species should be grown, how many, and where they will be planted to revive the reef  Raise these corals using accelerated growth and improved resiliency methods in their land-based farms Install the corals into the reef once they are sufficiently mature Monitor the reef's progress after installation
