Neso is proud to support Coral Restoration Foundation™ with the launch of our new Save the Reef print. CRF™ is the world’s largest non-profit marine-conservation organization dedicated to restoring coral reefs.
Their core mission is to restore coral reefs, continue scientific research and educate others on the importance of our oceans.
Florida’s Coral Reef is the third largest barrier reef in the world and the only barrier coral reef in the continental United States. In the last 40 years, Florida’s Coral Reef has lost around 97% of the populations of the once dominant coral species, staghorn and elkhorn.
Through cultivation, outplanting and monitoring, CRF™ is successfully restoring coral reefs. Designed by CRF™ the Coral Tree™ is widely accepted as one of the most effective methods for growing corals in the ocean. The organization currently has more than 740 Coral Trees™ throughout seven Coral Nurseries™. To give perspective, the largest nursery covers more than 1.5 acres of sea floor.
Since 2012, CRF™ have returned more than 140,000 critically endangered staghorn and elkhorn corals back onto Florida’s Coral Reef. To learn more about their efforts, visit their website here.
A portion of the sales of Save the Reef products will be donated to Coral Restoration Foundation™ to assist in their efforts of protection and restoring our coral reefs. To shop, visit our website here. Thanks for your support and shared interest.
