ABOUT Coral Restoration Curacao at LionsDive Beach Resort Curacao

Coral Restoration Curaçao (formerly Coral Restoration Foundation Curaçao) was set up in 2015 by the initiative of Ocean Encounters Diving Curacao.

After seeing the impact of the work that the Coral Restoration Foundation was doing and the success of Reef Renewal Bonaire, Ocean Encounters was keen to bring this work to Curaçao. With the help and knowledge of Ken Nedimyer from Reef Renewal International (founder of Coral Restoration Foundation) Coral Restoration Curaçao was founded.

The main objectives of this program are the restoration of our shallow water reef system, educating the community (the youth in particular) and protecting and preserving Curacao’s natural ecosystem.

Coral Restoration Curaçao’s (CRC) vision is of a future where the shallow water reef systems of Curaçao are no longer threatened and ocean stewardship and protecting our coral reefs is at the heart of Curaçao’s culture.
