MSC Foundation and partners are establishing a unique joint coral reef program aiming to rebuild the reefs and help them cope with climate change at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve.
Ocean Cay is MSC Cruises' new 64-square-mile marine protected private island. Ocean Cay will become a base for marine biologists to conduct scientific research into coral restoration and Super Coral.
Global, regional, and local partners, including the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (UM), Nova Southeastern University (NSU), the Perry Institute for Marine Science, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and The Centre Scientifique de Monaco (CSM), among other partners, are pooling expertise to deliver and document the unique program, and share the scientific knowledge gathered
Learning opportunities about coral will be provided in the future for up to half a million visitors each year.
