Help us restore
Curaçao's reefs
Coral Restoration Curaçao was an initiative of Ocean Encounters and is supported by our community, sponsors, and local volunteers. Our house reef is also home to the largest nursery and restoration area!

The main objective of this program is to enhance populations of endangered corals in different locations across Curaçao. In doing so, we engage the community, local schools, and visitors to our island to educate them on the importance of these vital ecosystems.
