The Coral Sea borders the Great Barrier Reef and the island archipelagos of Melanesia, and contains marine ecosystems of exceptionally high quality and biodiversity.
Our aim is to raise awareness of the ecological and social value of the Coral Sea and Eastern Coral Triangle, and to be proactive in its sustainable management. This region contains the last great reservoir of ultra-diverse coral reef in the world, yet most of it is remote and rarely visited, and there are insufficient marine protected areas to achieve robust conservation outcomes.
Combining an ethos of science, gender equity and sustainability, the Foundation works with traditional owners to develop marine reserves that enhance fisheries and protect biodiversity, while delivering humanitarian aid to improve the basic quality of life of people in our partner villages.
We fully support a global transition to renewable energy as a means of mitigating the effects of climate disruption on coral reefs, and we have a strong commitment to deliver our programs with innovative sailing vessels driven by wind power and biofuels.
Simply put, these coral reefs are too precious to lose.
We greatly value and appreciate your support.
