Global Giving & Reef Life Foundation

Updated: Oct 5

Reef Life developed an unprecedented coral reef restoration system called IntelliReefs that fosters new coral growth, increases fish abundance & provides homes for critical ocean creatures. Scientists found after only 14 months, IntelliReefs grew more biodiverse marine life than nearby natural reefs. Our team will plant your coral reef garden, which saves reefs and provides food, jobs & resources for island communities and businesses that rely on healthy oceans. Our NonProfit Global Giving Profile:

Within months, IntelliReef coral gardens provide critical homes for biodiverse marine plants and animals, supporting increased fish aggregation and natural coral settlement. The Nature Foundation issued a permit for a large-scale coral sculpture garden shaped like sea turtles, which restores natural reefs and enhances revenue possibilities for locals. Reef Life will continue to work with The Nature Foundation to expand IntelliReefs into the Marine Protected Area and other dive locations.

Long-Term Impacts

IntelliReef coral gardens generate critical revenue and jobs for island and coastal communities, while protecting and enhancing the local marine habitat. Because IntelliReefs can be scaled up to any size and shape, eco-tourist businesses recognize it's potential to cultivate economic AND biological growth. Long-term goals include building square kilometers of IntelliReefs world-wide, encouraging ocean conservation through collaborative research, and community education opportunities.
