Since 2015, the REEFolution Foundation combines scientific knowledge and hands-on restoration techniques to restore and protect coral reefs in Africa. Our foundation aims to train motivated local community members to become marine conservationists - REEF rangers - at our projects.
We collect loose coral fragments from the ocean floor which would otherwise not survive.
Our REEF rangers attach the coral fragments to coral reef nurseries to grow into large coral fragments. Our largest coral reef nursery yearly produces more than 8,000 new coral fragments.
Together with our scientific partners, REEF Rangers place a variety of different reef structures on the ocean floor. This way, we enhance biodiversity and develop potentially innovative approaches to coral reef restoration. Photo: MOSES structures by Reef Systems
Next, coral fragments are harvested from nurseries and outplanted onto the new coral reef structures.
And the corals are given a second chance of survival.
