 GIVE A GIFT THAT KEEPS GIVING

50% 
of the oxygen we breathe comes from ocean organisms such as the symbiotic algae living inside corals.
$375 billion
is generated each year by tourism directly related to coral reefs.
500 million 
people worldwide directly rely on the reef for food, income, coastal protection, and more.
25% 
of marine life call coral reefs their home, while covering less than 1% of the ocean floor.

Underwater Farms

Coral Farms provide advantages such as being sheltered from bleaching events, biological pests, and disease.

Why Coral? 

Coral removes inorganic carbon from the atmosphere effectively reducing the greenhouse gas effect.
Coral Reefs have the highest biodiversity of any ecosystem (including rainforests) 

Photosynthesis in the ocean?

Plants in the ocean also turn carbon dioxide into oxygen. Coral reefs effectively perform photosynthesis at a rate higher than ANY land forests, all while providing a home for 25% of the ocean (& using only 1% of the ocean floor).
