In the future, we plan to plant a coral nursery on Ocean Cay, under the guidance of the Perry Institute of Marine Science, and world-renown scientist Ken Nedimyer, the founder of the Coral Restoration Foundation and Reef Renewal.
Once those Super Corals in the nursery mature, they will be planted into the reefs surrounding the island to help rebuild those reefs. Ocean Cay is the ideal place for this Super Coral research as the corals found in shallower waters naturally experience warmer temperatures and make for some of the best candidates for propagating and cross fertilizing these heat-resistant genotypes.
Throughout the process, we will be adding additional articles and videos explaining the process of how coral is selected as Super Coral, the techniques used to propagate these Super Corals and the methods used to plant the coral in the degraded reef shown by trained restoration divers.
This invaluable research and coral planting on Ocean Cay is designed to become a global model and inform coral reef restoration around the world.
That’s why we need your continued support. Our commitment to you is that every Super Coral bracelet
sold will help protect our oceans and help fund this research.
