Double Check Your Sunscreen
14,000 tons of sunscreen enters the ocean every year.
Unfortunately, labels like "reef-safe" or "reef-friendly" aren't regulated, so it's up to each of us to make sure we're doing right by the ocean with each bottle we purchase.

Because if Reefs Go, WE Go
We know that local interventions are effective. CORAL scientists and partners are witnessing severe bleaching of 90-100% of corals in areas with poor water quality as opposed to 60-70% in regions where we have implemented strategies to ensure reefs have clean water to thrive.
