Our
objective

We are enhancing the survival and resilience of coral reefs in the Caribbean of Honduras by implementing innovative restoration techniques and knowledge generation.

What are we doing?

  • Transplanting substrates with established recruits in selected sites

  • Expanding the spawning monitors with three additional units per island: DLAB, DCYL, PSTR, ACER, and APAL

  • Enlarging efforts in assisted sexual reproduction

  • Launching our Microfragmentation project and expanding our nursery

  • Organizing training for government institution personnel and key organizations on reef-related topics and coral restoration

  • Innovative monitoring techniques: photogrammetry

  • Webinars related to coral restoration techniques

Asexual Coral Restoration

Coral can reproduce asexually through fragmentation; this occurs when a piece of coral breaks off to form a new colony that is genetically identical to the original colony.

Sexual Coral Restoration

Once a year, following the warmest months, coral colonies synchronize at night using signals from the lunar cycle and release their gametes for reproduction.

Report sightings of Pillar Corals!

Gathering this information holds significance as it helps us pinpoint their colony locations and enables us to execute our assisted fertilization efforts effectively."
