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.
