Description

The Coral Gardeners, based in Mo’orea in French Polynesia, aims to “change the world, one coral reef at a time”, via raising awareness and funds for reef restoration projects, using social media, merchandise and their Adopt a Super Coral programme. Their restoration work involves identifying super corals and growing super coral fragments until they are mature enough to be transplanted back onto the reef, with more than 15,000 corals have been replanted already. They are innovating new techniques using AI and smart sensors to observe and monitor the coral nurseries in real-time.
