How to Grow Corals - Coral Seeding on Large Scales
SECORE stands for SExual COral REproduction, which refers to SECORE's Coral Seeding approach for reef restoration: taking advantage of the corals’ own reproduction potential to develop scalable methods and technologies.
Breeding corals from collected coral spawn allows us to produce huge numbers of baby corals out of one spawning event while at the same time supporting genetic diversity and consequently promoting reef resilience.
SECORE's work is based on scientific best practices, translating experimental and field study findings into innovative, applicable technologies to sustainably restore coral reefs on an ecosystem-level.
SECORE shares its most recent knowledge through its implementation partner program to successfully apply coral seeding throughout the Caribbean and beyond. Right now, we are working with nine implementing nations in the Caribbean, are restoration research partners with AIMS (Australia) and JAMS (Saipan) and are preparing the expansion of our Coral Seeding approach to the Indian Ocean together with our partners on Mauritius.
SECORE’s international network of partnerships enables our team to collaborate across disciplines and promote capacity building on various levels.
Our vision is a world where thriving coral reefs support healthy oceans for future generations.
