Coral reefs hold cultural significance for coastal communities as well as provide food and livelihoods for over 500 million people around the world. They also provide vital habitats for 25% of marine species, including endangered, threatened and keystone species.

However, changing climate and human activities are killing coral reefs at unprecedented rates, and, according to recent IPCC reports, up to 90% of coral could be lost by 2050.

Coral Vita is one organization leading the way in helping to counter the harmful impacts of dying coral reefs. Through land-based coral farming methods microfragmentation and “assisted evolution” Coral Vita accelerates coral growth and grows coral that is more resilient to climate change threats.
