Get Involved

We know that success in protecting and restoring pristine coral reefs can only be accomplished with the help of a strong global network. Reef Renewal builds this type of network. Together we can accomplish our goals, making a practical and positive impact on our reefs as efficiently – and as quickly as possible.

Because there is no time to waste, we can provide you with the support you will need. For example, we can assist with grant proposals, grant you access to our shared database, and teach your staff and volunteers the best methods of coral monitoring and multi-species restoration. With our help, you can spend more time getting your hands wet, doing the actual restoration work and scaling up your operations. We are here to help jump start your operations by sharing the expertise of the best and brightest in coral restoration and reliance worldwide.
