We offer meaningful programs to train individuals to positively tackle environmental problems through coral reefs.

Background

Important Roles of Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are the foundation of the ecosystem in the ocean.

Rich fishery resources

Protection of the coast.

Coral Reef Crisis

Due to irregular seasonal typhoons, the ocean temperature rises that causes the coral bleaching, outbreak of crown of thorns, (the natural enemies of coral reefs) and water pollution.

What it means to conserve coral reef

It is said that it will take more than ten years for natural forces to turn damages of coral reefs into healthy coral reefs as before. Corals grow by incorporating carbon dioxide into their body. The amount of carbon dioxide hold in corals is about twice the amount that forest holds.

Program

While enjoying the beautiful ocean of Okinawa as leisure, studying coral and experiencing planting coral can give you opportunity to realize how important coral reefs are in ocean.
