Utila Starts Coral Restoration Project

Utila has started a new coral restoration project, to combat the adverse effects changing climate has had on its marine ecosystem.

The GoECO project is a collaboration between Utila Dive Center, in partnership with the Kanahau Utila Research and Conservation Facility, and is fully authorized by the Honduran Marina Mercante and ICF.

Over the coming months, the project aims to establish multiple artificial coral trees that will act as a nursery to critically endangered corals. Currently there are three active trees, but this will be significantly expanded. The trees will also provide the perfect opportunity for researchers and marine biologists to study these corals and conservation techniques.

Like a lot of conservation projects around the world, more funding is needed. You can help out confident that your entire donation will be going towards funding the program.

Contributions to the project can be made here.
