Saving the world's coral reefs

Hello,

Thanks to supporters like you, 2020 was a great year for coral reef! You helped us achieve one of our strongest fundraising years ever, bringing fiscal year 2020 to a close at nearly $2.5 million in individual and corporate donations. With an additional $1.5 million from foundation and government grants, that adds up to over $4 million raised to advance our mission of saving the world’s coral reefs.

And you can be confident that your donation went where it was needed most—nearly three-quarters of our total expenses went directly toward our conservation programs that are saving the world’s coral reefs. Some highlights from our work include:

  • In Maui, our Watershed Restoration project stopped over 20 tons of sediment—the equivalent weight of 10 cars—from reaching reefs thanks to support from over 100 volunteers.
  • In Roatán, Honduras, we installed 62 solar panels to West End’s Wastewater Treatment Plan, reducing their daytime energy consumption by 80% and their operation expenses by 70% in the summer peak.
  • In México, Belize, and Honduras, we trained nearly 130 tourism operators—fostering a culture of stewardship as participants share their new coral reef knowledge with their communities and tourists alike.
  • We launched a collaboration with the Allen Coral Atlas to facilitate a global network to assess coral bleaching events and water quality threat alerts.

So, thank you. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to coral reefs. I hope you enjoy reading how your support made a difference.

Yours in conservation,

Megan
