The theme of 2023's World Reef Day is "Reef Resilience: Protect, Restore, and Sustain."
While the CRC aims to support all components of this people-forward theme, our focus is on RESTORE. Coral reef restoration can help span the predicted gap between the present when existing coral populations are threatened with extinction, and a future ocean that is hospitable again to corals. CRC members are working to close the gap between success at the local level and impact at the ecosystem level. Take a moment today to create awareness with the people around you of the delicate ecosystem of our ocean's coral reefs.
