CORAL Progress in 2020

Despite the chaos of 2020, we have continued our vital work saving the world’s coral reefs. This year has challenged all of us—corals and humans—to adjust to a new normal. Here are a few stories about how we’ve adapted, which we couldn’t have done without your support. Thank you!

  • On Maui, we enabled 10-year-old Abby Rogers to grow 900 native plants in her backyard to help us prevent sediment from entering the ocean and smothering coral reefs.
  • Our three community scientists in Honduras brought improved fishing practices to the Mesoamerican Reef by building important relationships with fishers.
  • New results from our pioneering research show that protecting reefs that thrive in warmer waters may be key to helping evolution rescue reefs from the effects of climate change.
  • When COVID-19 hit, the Roatán Marine Park lost 85% of its revenue. But through CORAL’s partnership, they were able to prioritize patrols and continue protecting their coral reefs.
  • We created a network of partners on Hawai‘i Island to launch a robust, volunteer-based water quality testing program and began monitoring sites around the island.
  • Together with our partners, we trained nearly 130 tourism operators on best practices for coral reef conservation throughout México, Belize and Honduras this year.
  • We helped the Polo’s Water Association secure funding to install solar panels on their wastewater treatment plant, reducing their daytime energy consumption by about 80%.
