Dedicated to Coral Reefs

25 years of experience in coral farming, coral reef restoration, and training. Over 1 million corals planted! almost 100,000 in the last few years on large scale coral reef restoration projects.



Adopt a coral, and receive a digital Ocean Gardener certificate with your name and co-ordinates of the coral. The new coral fragment will be cared for in one of our coral nurseries.


Once your coral is big enough it will be used for a coral restoration project.
