Dedicated to giving coral reefs a future, SECORE invites you to support our work.

We seek collaboration partners, such as scientific institutions, zoos and public aquariums, governmental organizations and NGO's to work together for a better future (our work). The global decline of coral reefs is alarming (coral reefs are dying), our tasks are immense, and we can only succeed by working together.

As a not-for-profit organization, SECORE depends on donations to continue and expand its work. With a donation, you directly support one of our field projects ('sexual coral restoration') and help to conserve coral reefs.

We appreciate your active interest in our work. You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter or sign in for our newsletter (bottom right of page) and check out our newsroom to get the most recent news. Help us to spread the word.

What else can you do?
Each and every one of us shapes our future and it is time to take responsibility for our actions. Climate change is an overarching threat, not only to coral reefs (Climate Change Threatens the Survival of Coral Reefs), but also to the health of our planet (climate change facts by National Geographic). The future and survival of our species depends upon sustainable management of our planet's resources—particular ecosystem services.

Not only should the policymakers, who in democratic countries are elected by us, act towards an effective protection of our climate, but we, as citizens of this world, can change our behavior and make a difference. For instance, one third of the emission of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide is within our direct range of influence. Many of us are free to turn a personal change into a positive impact for our planet (10 things you can do to save the ocean, Carbon footprint calculator).
