Sweet Bottom and Coral Restoration Curaçao
The restoration work starts by hanging fragments of Staghorn and Elkhorn corals on coral trees and letting them grow.
The outplants can be seen all over the island. Contact Coral Restoration Curaçao for more information about the ongoing projects at LionsDive Beach Resort, Director’s Bay, Kontiki Beach Resort, Baoase Luxury Resort and Avila Beach Hotel today.
Protecting what we love in Curaçao
All aspects of our island depend on coral reefs, from coastal protection and food on our table to revenue from tourism. The existence of coral reefs is intertwined into much of the infrastructure and revenue on the island. However, these coral reefs are threatened by human impacts and reef restoration is only part of the solution.
For us to effectively build back and restore the shallow water reef systems of Curaçao, we need the support of a variety of stakeholders and government officials.
We need to take the importance of coral reefs out of the water and make it something that is valued by the whole community of Curaçao.
