Our research partner, the Coral Academy at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), conducts continuous post-outplant monitoring of coral fragments and coral babies. Thus far, the overall survival rate of the planted corals is above 90%. This positive growth makes it virtually certain that the planted corals will create a higher biodiversity index within the local area.
We are conscious that every process involved in our restoration work has an inherent carbon footprint, and we are committed to keeping that footprint as small as possible. We only use locally-made coral cookies, reducing unnecessary long-distance transportation.
Since corals provide habitat for 25% of all marine life, they also support both food security and economic security. By providing such nature-based solutions as protecting and restoring corals, we are supporting commercial and subsistence fisheries, as well as businesses focusing on recreational activities and ecotourism.
