Care for a Coral
Join the Coral Crusade and be one of the first allowed to adopt coral grown on the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef.
On completion of your adoption, you will receive, a certificate with your name on it that you can print out or download for your records. Please note the certificates are electronically stamped with the name of the buyer. If you are buying as a gift for someone, please use their name in this field at checkout. You will also receive regular updates on the growth of the coral and further information the work that Reef Restoration Foundation are doing to improve the health and resilience of the Great Barrier Reef.
Our team is working hard to grow and plant corals onto the reef around Fitzroy Island and to expand the program to other locations. You can help by becoming a Coral Crusader and adopting a coral in our Coral Nurseries.
This next generation of coral starts as a cutting, about the size of your finger, which is snipped from healthy corals adjacent to the reef that is to be regenerated. The corals are then attached to the coral tree frames in an ocean-based nursery. The frames accelerate the growth of the corals, which are checked regularly, cleaned and measured to ensure there are no signs of disease.
As a Coral Crusader your adopted coral will be selected from corals that have withstood the previous two bleaching events and should give the damaged reef the best opportunity to regenerate.
