Coral Guardian is a not-for-profit environmental organisation that has set up the Blue Centre training programme. Its premise is to provide one-off or regular support, either theoretical or practical, in the development of a marine conservation project.

In 2015, Coral Guardian launched a pilot participatory marine conservation project around Hatamin Island, near Komodo National Park in Indonesia. The success of the project is defined by positive social and environmental indicators, such as the involvement of the local community in restoring the coral ecosystem on which they depend, and the involvement of people around the world through the Adopt a Coral programme.

Since the very beginning, when a marine conservation area was created and nearly 38,000 corals transplanted into the area, 30.2 times more fish have appeared on the site in just 4 years! Building on this success, the organisation now wants to pass on its knowledge and support others in developing their own coral reef protection and restoration project.

“In response to the ecological and social crisis we are currently going through, Coral Guardian wishes to share its knowledge gained over the past years and accompany other actors wishing to develop their own coral reef restoration project.”

To date, two projects have been selected and are now part of the Blue Center’s programmes, starting in 2020. The first project called ‘SOS Corals’ will be implemented in the Mediterranean region in collaboration with the local group Equilibrio Marino.

The second project, entitled ‘Ancestral Anchors’, will take place in the Caribbean region, in partnership with local group Sistema Natural, and is designed to address the degradation of the local ecosystem following the growth of tourism in the region.
