The Reef Renewal Foundation Network has announced that the local coral restoration project by Ocean Encounters Curaçao is joining their network.
The project started in 2015 and since then has been growing and outplanting endangered corals and teaching the local community about the importance of coral and its conservation. The project will now be known as the Reef Renewal Curaçao (RRC).
Over the years, the projects has successfully outplanted over 10,000 endangered corals back into the waters off Curaçao.
Commenting on the new partnership, Ocean Encounters Managing Director Jeremiah Peek said:
“We loved working with Ken when he helped us establish our coral nurseries, and we look forward to working with him again and benefiting from all the advancements that Ken has implemented in Florida and across the Caribbean. We believe our continued collaborations with our island partners, coupled with our new partnerships within the RRFI Network, will allow us to scale our work to make an island-wide impact on Curaçao’s reefs.”
