Coral Guardian’s mission is to preserve marine ecosystems by involving local populations, raise awareness and participate in scientific discoveries.
These ecosystems are among the most biodiverse on the planet, with more than 500 species per square metre in some parts of the world. France is 4th on the list of countries with the most coral reefs and the only one to have coral reefs in all three oceans. France’s 8 overseas territories are home to nearly 10% of all coral reefs and 20% of the world’s atolls.
1. PARTICIPATORY MARINE CONSERVATION
Coral Guardian restores damaged coral reefs through coral fragmentation and scientific monitoring. Involving local people is a key factor for success. The projects then have a lasting and concrete impact on local communities.
2. RAISE AWARENESS
Coral restoration is also a tool to raise awareness. Thanks to this tool, Coral Guardian educates communities to promote the use of sustainable fishing methods and, internationally, through its “Adopt a coral” program, its «raise awareness» kit and various events.
3. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
Coral Guardian aims to make marine science more accessible through simplified scientific articles, participation in scientific research and in sharing biological and social data.
