Moorea Ocean Adventures is proud to be partner with the CORAL GARDNERS NGO
Our island Moorea is home to a small group of friends who created Coral Gardeners, an organization of kids and young adults who wants to rebuild the coral reefs in Polynesia. They are a team of surfers, fishermen and free divers who have experienced first hand just how precious our oceans and coral reefs are. Founder and President Titouan Bernicot, 20, was born and raised on a Polynesian atoll to parents who ran a pearl farm. In between fishing and surfing, the ocean became his playground, but over the years he began to notice that the coral reefs were disappearing. That was when he decided to start replant coral. The team has since attracted attention and support from scientists, biologists, photographers and conservationists from all over the world.
THEY SAVE THE REEFS THROUGH EDUCATION : Through conferences, interactions with the public and schools,Coral Gardeners educate adults and children about coral reefs, why they are important, and the threats they face.
THEY SAVE THE REEF THROUGH RESTORATION: The reef on our island home, Moorea, has been heavily impacted. Through coral gardening, Coral Gardeners are contributing to restoring it by planting healthy coral fragments back onto the reef.
