our Current Campaign
Mil corales para Costa Rica / A thousand corals for Costa Rica:
Raising Coral will grow at least 1000 corals (multiple species) and plant them at in Golfo Dulce at reef sites that have been previously damaged.
The Campaign Kickoff:
The Campaign kicks off on March 8, 2019 at the Cine Magaly in San Jose, with a premiere of the documentary "Simbiosis" by Costa Rica’s film company Pelagos, which follows the Raising Coral team, both above and below the water in their coral nursery and on the reef. The Campaign will also include the release of the beautiful children’s book “Los Corales Mágicos,” by Costa Rican author Lara Rios, and other art displays.
The Campaign Schedule:
Nursery expansion and coral fragmentation will begin immediately after the Campaign, and within a year, at least 1000 corals will be outplanted to select reef sites. The newly planted coral communities will be monitored for several years.
Cost of the Campaign:
US$ 35.000. The cost of this campaign also includes outfitting and training a few local workers to help with nursery maintenance. The more funds we have, the more corals we will grow, and the more locals we can train.
The Campaign will be financed with tax deductible donations from corporations and private donors.
