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. An area with cold-water corals hosts 29 times more species than an area without corals.

Food resource

A food resource

Approximately 1 billion people live within 100 kilometres of coral reefs and are likely to benefit from their ecosystem services. 500 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 coral ecosystems for employment. According to an estimate, the total annual net benefit of the world’s coral reefs is $29.8 billion.

Coral reefs are damaged due to an accumulation of threats resulting from human activities. Overfishing, pollution and coastal development are at the top of the list of chronic stressors. Others are dredged or sandblasted for their limestone or to improve access and navigational safety.

 

If we do not act quickly, according to some scientists, corals could disappear by 2050.
