Reef Renewal USA Supported By The Sea of Change Foundation


The Sea of Change Foundation has announced its support for the Reef Renewal USA online coral nursery diver training program.

The foundation will offer Reef Renewal USA a grant, which will be matched to create an online coral nursery diver training program. The training will be open to divers from across the globe and aims to train a large number of divers in the basics of coral nursery operations to boost the number of available coral nursery volunteers. These facilities are becoming a crucial global tool in protecting our reefs.

Commenting on the support, Sea of Change Foundation Executive Director Samantha Whitcraft stated:

“At the Sea of Change Foundation, we believe in empowering communities to participate in local conservation so this worthy project is a perfect fit.”

While the founder of Reef Renewal International and coral conservation expert Ken Nedimyer said:

“I’ve long envisioned a future where any diver who wanted to could help us save threatened coral species like elkhorn and staghorn corals. And now it seems the future is here.”
