Why restoring coral reefs is so important

Coral reefs are the beating heart of our oceans. They provide nurseries and food for a quarter of all marine life and sustain a billion people worldwide.

Coral reefs are the most vulnerable ecosystem on the planet. If ocean temperatures rise as predicted, we could lose them in our lifetime.

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation shares why the restoration of coral reefs is so important.

2030 ambitions for the Great Barrier Reef

Deploy 10 million heat tolerant corals annually across 100 priority
reefs on the Great Barrier Reef.

Empower frontline communities across the Pacific and beyond with
Reef-saving strategies and technologies.

Their impact so far

Introduced Coral IVF on the Reef and have used it to grow and settle
millions of baby corals since 2016.

Pioneered huge advances in coral restoration including heat tolerant
corals and cryopreservation technologies.

Established partnerships in Palau, New Caledonia and Belize to help make
their reefs more resilient to climate change.

It's time to act

Warmer temperatures are triggering mass coral bleaching events, disrupting food supplies and threatening entire ecosystems. This doesn't need to be our future.

After decades of research and development, their suite of innovative solutions is ready to roll out in Australia and across the Pacific.
