SECORE integrates science and engineering, refines coral restoration methodologies using coral seeding and creates novel tools that allow for the implementation of large-scale restoration—global coral restoration.

We strongly cooperate with our local partners at each working site, provide training and mentor-ship to facilitate the implementation of coral breeding methods and restoration tools on-site.
