Ways To Give

Working alongside local people, communities and partners—from fishers and government leaders to SCUBA divers and scientists—CORAL protects one of our most valuable and threatened ecosystems. Your support helps our international team design and manage long-term conservation programs that reduce local threats to coral reefs, thereby increasing the resilience of coral reefs and promoting their ability to adapt.
