Coral Vita - Grows climate change resilient corals up to 50x faster to restore dying reefs

Coral Vita’s land-based farms integrate new methods developed by our advisors to accelerate coral growth up to 50x (microfragmenting) while enhancing their resiliency to warming and acidifying oceans (assisted evolution).

One billion people and a quarter of all marine life depend on coral reefs, but half of the global reefs are dead and over 90% are on track to die by 2050. The solution consists of a land-based farm capable of potentially supplying an entire nation’s reefs with sufficient capital investment. Coral Vita innovative form of high-tech coral farming supports a for-profit business model to sustain large-scale restoration. Given reefs’ tremendous value, the technology favours the transition of the restoration space into a commercial industry. Implemented restoration projects directly benefit communities by sustaining biodiversity, increasing fish stocks, protecting shorelines from storm surges, boosting tourism, and creating jobs.
