Hope for Reefs 1195 673 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

California Academy of Sciences – United States of America (USA)

Hope for Reefs is a major initiative at the California Academy of Sciences that aims to reverse the rapid decline of Earth’s coral reefs in this generation.

Over the next five years, we will advance high-impact interventions—from establishing sustainable fisheries and marine protected areas to on-the-reef restoration—all implemented with local communities and cross-sector stakeholders.

We will scale a successful model for community reef monitoring to the national level; increase capacity for rapid response to catastrophic events impacting reefs; and apply new technologies to map, monitor, forecast, and regenerate reef health.

We will also leverage our world-class education programs and Steinhart Aquarium to inspire and train a diverse cadre of future reef scientists while supporting a global youth corps of emerging environmental leaders advocating on behalf of coral reefs.

Start Date: 01/07/2021
End Date: 30/06/2026
