Coral Guardian


Wishing to go even further in our approach, we have chosen to support the fight of Coral Guardian, which works for the preservation, restoration and enhancement of coral ecosystems in Indonesia and the Mediterranean.

In 2012, Martin Colognoli decided to co-found Coral Guardian with the “Adopt a Coral” program, after realizing the harmful impact on the corals of the tropical fish farm in which he worked.

Scientists estimate that coral reefs host more than 25% of marine species. These ecosystems are threatened by human activity, including overfishing, pollution and coastal development. Without action to protect them, corals could disappear by 2050.

After a few years of research and development to find how to restore and preserve these corals, Coral Guardian is launching its first “participatory conservation” project, involving local populations directly.

In 2019, the association launched the Blue Centers, which allow other structures to develop thanks to their expertise. A year later, Coral Guardian set up the first participatory conservation program in the Mediterranean.

Since then, the association has continued to grow and develop. Here are some numbers on Coral Guardian:

- More than 40,000 corals transplanted in Indonesia

- 30.2 times more fish in 4 years in Indonesia

- 1.2 HA of marine protected area created in Indonesia

- 30 local jobs created in Indonesia

- 576 kg of waste recovered in the Mediterranean

- 419 corals transplanted in the Mediterranean

- More than 2,500,000 people sensitized worldwide
