WHY RESTORE CORAL ECOSYSTEMS?

Biodiversity

A habitat for biodiversity

Scientists estimate that coral reefs are home to more than 25% of marine species. Corals are also at the core of the formation of other ecosystems.

Coastal protection

A coastal protection

Reefs only cover 0.2% of the oceans. Yet they protect more than 150,000 kilometres of coastline in more than 100 countries and territories. They can form a barrier that absorbs wave energy and thus help reduce coastal erosion.

Food resource

A food resource

About 1 billion people live within 100 kilometres of coral reefs and are likely to benefit from their ecosystem services. 330 million people directly depend on them. Reefs can yield between 5 and 15 tonnes of fish and shellfish per square kilometre.

Economy

Of economic importance

Millions of people around the world depend on reefs for employment. According to an estimate, the total annual net benefit of the world’s coral reefs is $29.8 billion.

Health

A medical future

Coral reefs also contribute to research advancements, in particular by providing interesting possibilities for the treatment of various diseases.

Our programme so far

We are currently restoring the damaged reefs of Hatamin island near the village of Seraya Besar in Indonesia.

40 000

corals have already been transplanted thanks to this initiative, allowing this village of 750 inhabitants to continue to make a living from fishing.
