Aquariology is your passion. And if your choice could contribute to the preservation of coral reef ecosystems?
Commit to preserve marine biodiversity through responsible purchasing and contributing to the well being of these fragile ecosystems.
On the participatory conservation principle, Coral Guardian offers aquarists an opportunity to commit to a more responsible aquariology hobby focusing on cultured species rather than wild animals. In making this choice in shops committed (see store list below), you contribute to our coral reef restoration projects in Indonesia by donating € 1 per cultured corals purchased.
The objective of this approach is to educate aquarists and retailers about responsible choices so that this hobby is as respectful as possible of the environment.
If you’re passionate, make responsible choices. Then the whole distribution chain will be forced to adapt to your demand. Your choices are crucial.
The tropical marine aquarium is often accused of participating in the destruction of reef ecosystems. Most of the marine animals are still wild-caught, local fishermen lack of knowledge about fishing methods and maintenance of animals in captivity and the financial resources of this activity is unevenly distributed over the supply chain and the local population in the exporting countries are the most affected.
This is an opportunity for you to contribute to the preservation of coral reef ecosystems that your passion is totally dependent.
On the participatory conservation principle, you can contribute to the sustainable development of this activity and the preservation of coral reef ecosystems by favoring an array of animals from breeding or culture.
The funds collected contributes to our coral reef restoration projects in progress.
