Dedicated to restoring Bonaire’s coral reefs
Since 2012, Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire has been dedicated to restoring Bonaire’s coral reefs through innovative coral nurseries and restoration techniques. Guided by our key priorities, we continue to restore multiple coral species, educate people from around the world about how they can help, and use the latest science and research to guide and shape our techniques.
We assist the recovery of deteriorated coral reef areas in Bonaire, using active coral restoration as a strategy to preserve and enhance the population of coral species.
Coral propagation by fragmentation is a coral reef restoration technique that is based on the asexual reproduction of corals. It allows us to harness the natural process of fragmentation to propagate large numbers of corals.
We use coral sexual reproduction as a coral reef restoration method. This method increases the genetic diversity of corals on reefs scales up the number of corals we can outplant.
