CORALThe Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) is a member-supported nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting coral reefs around the world for current and future generations.

CORAL:

  • works with communities to identify and solve conservation challenges;
  • changes attitudes and behavior through education and training;
  • provides resources to strengthen conservation efforts; and
  • creates incentives for sustainable tourism.

Progress in Fiji

Scattered across roughly 1.3 million square kilometers of the South Pacific, the Fijian Archipelago encompasses one of the most extensive coral reef systems in the world. The rich biodiversity of marine life in this area is one of the most important reasons that CORAL chose to focus our project work in the Fijian communities of Namena and Waitabu. CORAL has provided training for local tourism business, helping community members improve their business practices, reduce anchor damage to the reef, and educate visitors about environmentally responsible tourism.

By demonstrating how the development of well-managed marine protected areas can benefit the overall community, CORAL facilitated the establishment of no-take marine reserves that are improving the health and resiliency of the reefs.

Along with our local partners, CORAL is making real progress toward the creation of sustainable coral reefs and communities in Fiji.CORAL

The Best Shark Dive in the World!
  • WA Shark Cull - Recommendations by Riley!
    Source - and do watch the video! Read this. Totally agree. Please submit your comment right away as the submission period ends this Wednesday, April 16. Like Riley, I advocate choosing Assess - Public Environmental Review (PER) as it is less rigid than API category B and also more open to scrutiny by the public. Thank you.
  • A tale of two Atolls!
    Juvenile Galapagos Shark, by Thomas Peschak. Source. Great job! Watch. Story here, in depth coverage here. Which once again goes to prove that it is possible to enjoy excellent Shark media without having to endure the stupid clap trap, gratuitous drama and narcissistic self promotion of those media whores! Kudos!
  • Drones - breaching GWS next?
    Nice! Story here. Which obviously begs the question, who is gonna regale us with equivalent footage of GWS from places like South Africa! Eagerly standing by!
