The Issue

According to a statement by the Southeast Asian Centre of Excellence (SEA CoE), many local, coastal communities do not understand or know what a coral reef actually is, how its ecosystem interacts with them, and why it is so important for their villages to preserve and conserve it. Unfortunately, these beautiful coral reefs are now at serious risk from degradation. According to scientists, 70 percent of the world's coral reefs may be lost by 2050. In the Philippines, coral reefs have been slowly dying over the past 30 years.

The Solution

Provides resources to help sustain livelihoods and alleviate poverty through the protection, restoration and management of coral reefs and associated ecosystems​
Coral Cay Conservation - Philippines Team
The story begins in 1986, in Belize, when Coral Cay Conservation was born from a need to take action and conserve coral reefs that were showing signs of degradation. Over the next three decades the use of citizen scientists proved to be an extremely effective tool, allowing us to collect high-quality data which could be used towards the establishment of sustainable marine and terrestrial management protocols.
