Coral Gardeners was founded in Mo’orea, the sister island of Tahiti, in French Polynesia.
In 2017, a small group of island kids witnessed the rapid degradation of their local reef and decided to act. They have grown into an international collective of advocates, scientists, engineers and creators determined to revolutionize ocean conservation. Since 2017, the team has expanded to more than 20 members, with a global movement of half a million people all committing to save the reefs. To date, Coral Gardeners has been able to plant over 15,700 corals around the island.
