Reef Restoration Foundation
Coral restoration has been assisting damaged reefs overseas to regenerate for more than three decades. Reef Restoration Foundation is a not-for-profit social enterprise who collaborated with successful coral restoration projects in Florida and the Caribbean before creating the first Great Barrier Reef nursery near Cairns. They successfully grow coral at a nursery at Fitzroy Island on coral tree frames. Once established, Reef Restoration Foundation replant them on nearby reefs. This process of coral regrowth mimics nature and accelerates the growth process to enable reefs to recover from bleaching and cyclone damage faster.
