We are proud to have the support of Mexican National Fishing Institute (INAPESCA) and National Fishing Research Center in Puerto Morelos (CRIAP), working alongside Dr. Claudia Padilla. It has been her team's goal since 2017 to restore over 260 million corals to the Mesoamerican reefs from Contoy to Tulum. All the corals restored through Coralisma’s projects fall within Dr. Claudia’s count. We hope to continue contributing to this number through all of our future projects as well.
Coralisma forms part of an international collaboration that aims to restore the Arrecife de Puerto Morelos National Park (APMNP) with stony coral micro-fragmentation techniques. The INAPESCA, the CRIAP, and the Coral Reef Restoration Assessment and Monitoring Laboratory (CRRAM) at Nova Southeastern University are the collaborators in this project.
We are grateful for all that we have accomplished but none of it would be possible without all our donors, partners, and volunteers. Specifically, the support of our community through our GoFundme website. We have been lucky enough to receive great donations from large institutions such as Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen, and RHL Properties.
