GCRA Donation Request Page

GCRA, a 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit organization, is accepting donations to help fund the following programs in 2018:

– Training local communities in developing countries to use Biorock methods for large-scale marine ecosystem restoration and sustainable mariculture. Please follow this link to learn more about the Biorock method. A detailed outline describing our Indigenous Community Program can be found by following this link. 

Indonesia

Please support coral reef restoration projects in Indonesia, the country with the world’s largest and most diverse coral reefs, more than 90% of which have been severely damaged. Our Indonesian partners, Biorock Indonesia have been asked to help fishing communities do what they did by restoring their coral reefs, all across the heartland of the world’s finest coral reefs. Funding will allow us to start new projects, and upgrade old ones. We are currently running a donation campaign on the Projects for Good platform. Click to view the request page.

Panama
The Guna Indians are abandoning a quarter of their islands because of increasing erosion from global sea level rise. GCRA works with them to grow back their coral reefs, beaches, islands, and lobster fisheries.

Jamaica
GCRA is working with local fishermen to protect the best reef left in Jamaica and grow back the lost coral reefs and fisheries.

Vanuatu
The 2016 reef restoration and mariculture training workshop was followed by requests for training from many fishing villages across the islands. Funding will allow local training teams to go to all the islands.

Grenada
The first reef restoration projects in Grenada and Carriacou will soon be installed. These projects will be expanded to new sites as a training center for the Eastern Caribbean.

Bahamas
We are helping the North Eleuthera community developing new approaches to mariculture of Caribbean lobsters, conch, fishes, and other species.

Philippines
Communities in the Philippines will be supported with training to regenerate their coral reefs and develop sustainable mariculture.

Palau
The Hatahobei people will be helped to save Hotsararie Reef, formerly the most species-rich reef in the Pacific, from being lost to erosion from sea level rise.

– Digitizing and making public the world’s oldest photographs of coral reef health, for a documentary film comparing long-term changes in reefs worldwide, the causes, and the solutions

The Global Coral Reef Alliance is a worldwide voluntary network of scientists, divers, and communities developing cutting-edge methods for restoring and managing coral reefs and marine ecosystems against global warming, sea level rise, pollution, and disease.
