What We Do.

We aim to effectively reduce the decline of coral reefs and species throughout The Bahamas and the Caribbean. We assess and treat coral disease, actively engage businesses and organizations in coral restoration projects, innovate new restoration techniques, and use the best science and technology available to educate the public. Our coral program also provides key information to inform policy decisions that make coral reefs more resilient.

Coral Restoration

We are dedicated to reversing the decline of coral reefs. The Reef Rescue Network works with organizations and businesses to establish coral nurseries throughout the Caribbean, grow and outplant corals, as well as monitor the health of local coral reefs. We provide the technical expertise and resources for effective coral restoration.

Disease

Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease (SCTLD) has plagued Caribbean waters for several years, traveling up to 50 meters (55 yards) per day and killing thousands of corals in its wake. We monitor corals for SCTLD – as well as other diseases – and train divers to administer life-saving antibiotics onto infected reefs.

As a member of the SCTLD Task Force, we also work with the Department of Marine Resources and the Department of Environmental Planning & Protection in The Bahamas to limit the spread of SCTLD.

Bahamas Coral Innovation Hub

The Bahamas Coral Innovation Hub (BCIH) is a center that develops, implements, and disseminates novel and scalable coral restoration techniques to help counteract coral reef decline. We’ve created a research facility that hosts coral scientists, conservation managers, local stakeholders, students, and educators from around the world!

3D Modelling

We've harnessed an exciting new technology – photogrammetry – to create detailed, 3D models of coral reefs. These models and photomosaics (2D satellite-style maps of reef surfaces) are incredible tools to not only monitor coral reef health over time, but to show students the underwater world of coral reefs from the classroom!

Research

We create and manage coral restoration practices within organizations and businesses throughout The Bahamas and the Caribbean. Our goal is to help organizations and businesses see how coral restoration benefits the educational, recreational, economic and scientific agendas of the entire region.
