 Eco Divers Reef Foundation is a nonprofit organization set up in the Cayman Islands.  Eco Divers Reef Foundation is currently involved with three coral nursery sites on the West side of Grand Cayman and with your help we are excited to begin moving that coral back onto our local reefs.

In the last several decades, coral mortality around the world has been high, but in the Caribbean, the effects are catastrophic.  Over 80 percent mortality in stony corals and massive areas that were once flourishing coral gardens are stripped to bare rock.  Overfishing , pollution and a host of other forces have left the Caribbean coral species reduced to a fraction of their original scale.

However, Grand Cayman is an isolated island surrounded by deep, clean water.  Combined with a motivated local government and detailed Marine Park laws, Grand Cayman is a rare combination of forces that can work to undo the damage that has been allowed to date.  

And this is where you can help.  Daily activities underwater take thoughtful planning and commitment to effect real change.  Monitoring and maintenance of our coral nurseries requires young men and women to suit up and head underwater.  Surveying the health of outplanted corals requires dedication and planning to work together with local dive operations.

When you donate to our Coral Nursery Program, you are helping put money behind our operation so we can afford the equipment, training and staff as they head underwater to restore our coral reefs.  As a donor you will be given acess to our photos and video updates showing just exactly what we are doing on a daily basis.  You also will have to chance to offer insight or contribute on our social media platforms and we are excited to engage our supporters as we put coral in hand and do the real work of restoring our reefs.

We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to be able to offer this program and have worked with many of the dive operations on island.  Eco Divers Reef Foundation is enthusiastic and together we believe our program will be a long term sucess.  The final piece is you.  Make a donation in any amount and do your part to begin replanting our coral reefs.

Goals
$110 of $3,000 per month
This amount of support will be critical to providing the equipment and gear required to repeatedly explore underwater at our coral nursery sites.  The funds provided here will allow us to focus fully on the coral in our nurseries and to work with the Department of Enviroment to determine the best locations for coral outplanting.  Monthly video updates and regular facebook and blog posts will detail the daily activities and progress of our program.
