What we believe in

Oceans and coral reefs are the backbone of a multitude of ecosystems and for human livelihood.

World ecosystem illustration.

Unfortunately, we have already lost or severely damaged more than 50% of coral reefs and 85% of oyster beds worldwide. Studies estimate nearly all reefs will be at risk by 2050 unless action is taken now to reduce the threats. These alarming projections are increasingly becoming a major challenge in many parts of the world.

The ABC's of Reef Support

Aquaculture Insights

Precision aquaculture allows you to incur the lowest impact on surroundings. Certification programs today rely on annual in-person audits that is only affordable by a limited number of larger farms, which also has been difficult to conduct due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. While certification programs are moving to supplement audits with more frequent farmer-submitted information, this too has been challenging due to the lack of incentives for sharing data. Reef Support brings together insights from the farm paired with knowledge from the eyes of the skies.

Beaches & Coastlines

Each year, billions of pounds of trash and other pollutants enter the ocean. Some of the debris ends up on our beaches, washed in with the waves and tides. Some sink, eaten by marine animals that mistake it for food, and some accumulate in ocean gyres. Despite the economic benefits of tourism, beach managers have grown increasingly resistant to continued resort development due to lack of clear predictive insights and planning strategies. Reef Support brings informative insights to better manage coastal and land-based pollution.

Coral Reefs Protection

Healthy reefs act as natural barriers, protecting coastal cities, communities, and beaches from pounding ocean waves. Nearly 200 million people depend on coral reefs to protect them from storm surges and waves. With more frequent and severe storms predicted as part of climate change, coastal protection services from our reefs will become even more important in the future. Increased acidification, pollution, fishing and other forms of coastal activities all impact our reefs.
