Adopt a Coral Reef
Adopt a restored section of coral reef in Costa Rica
Symbolically adopt a section of restored coral reef, for yourself or a loved one.
The Marine Conservation Costa Rica team will transplant 20 coral fragments onto one of our target reefs for restoration in Costa Rica.
Corals are naturally slow growing, depending on the species they will be in the nurseries for 6-12 months. The nursery structures are regularly cleaned and maintained for optimal conditions for coral growth. Once they reach an optimal size and health, we out-plant them as new coral colonies on our target restoration reef. For us, this is the most rewarding part of the process- seeing them thriving in their natural habitat!
