Adopting Caribbean Coral

bonaire3-567x401

This is a very important cause. Caribbean Journal writes about Bonaire’s efforts to protect the environment through its Bonaire Coral Restoration Foundation. The foundation offers the opportunity to adopt a coral tree with a personal or company name on it, with all funding directly benefiting the foundation. See more information below:

When it comes to the protection of the environment, the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire is at the forefront of the region. And that’s exemplified in the work of the Bonaire Coral Restoration Foundation, which has been working to regrow and plant new coral to supply for the region’s endangered reefs.

Now, the foundation has announced its newest initiative: offering the chance to adopt a coral.

The programme gives the opportunity of adopting a coral tree with a personal or company name on it, with all funding directly benefiting the foundation — for $50. That includes a certificate, a thank you letter, a UW Tree tag and digital images.

The foundation, which launched as a joint project between the Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire and the Coral Restoration Foundation USA, has transplanted almost 4,000 corals to five different restoration sites on the island.
