'Chasing corals' (Netflix documentary) is an ode to the sea and perfectly resembles the tragedy of coral bleaching we are nowadays facing. Intervention is vital and donations are needed in this race against the clock. We're all part of this, together.
Donate a Nursery tree
A nursery tree is a structure to which we attach small coral fragments. Once these small fragments are grown large, they are being harvested. The harvested fragments will be outplanted onto coral cakes, cages or bottle reefs.
ADOPT A Bottle REEF
A bottle reef is an artifical reef structure that functions as hard substrate to corals. The bottles are cleaned and bought from local restaurants.
Then, the bottles are placed in the concrete structures. Next, bottle reefs are placed and allocated to their position where coral fragments will be outplanted onto them.
You will be granted a personalized bottle reef certificate including the number of your bottle reef. Each year, you will receive a photo update of your reef's status.
'Nothing is left, for the local fishermen this is disastrous. These corals will not come back by itself.'

Husna is one of the local Kenyans who showed interest into our project. November 2019 she first visited the FireFly Ocean Camp in Kenya. She couldn't swim and barely knew a thing about the marine environment. 9 months later, she received a sponsored certification and now she works as reef ranger at REEFolution Kenya.
She has become an example to others and shares our message with the local community.
