Why Coral Restoration Matters

Coral reefs are vital to the ecosystem of Curaçao, providing coastal protection, food, and revenue from tourism. However, they are threatened by human impacts. Reef restoration is crucial to preserving these ecosystems. Reef Renewal Curaçao envisions a future where the shallow water reef systems are no longer threatened, and ocean stewardship becomes an integral part of Curaçao’s culture.
