the role of coral reefs

Without significant human action, corals could disappear from the planet by 2050. Beyond their undeniable beauty, coral reefs play a key role in our ecosystem and more specifically in the underwater world:

  • They provide food for many fish… and the people who eat them! 1 km 2 of coral reef can generate between 5 and 15 tonnes of fish and crustaceans.
  • They help reduce the power of waves to protect coastlines from erosion. Representing 0.1% of the ocean’s surface, reefs protect no less than 150000 km of coastline worldwide.
  • They are a breeding and nursery ground for many species. More than one in four species lives in coral reefs

Yet since 2009, 20% of coral reefs disappeared due to massive bleaching episodes linked to global warming – that’s a surface area of 11,700 km completely destroyed.  These corals are also threatened
by overfishing, human activities and pollutions.

According to IPCC report, a rise of 1.5°C would lead to the disappearance of 70 to 90% of corals. With
the urgency of the situation, our association is working to restore coral reefs by combining its actions
with the use of innovative technologies.
We create artificial reefs to maintain and preserve marine biodiversity. In addition to our rapid and
effective actions, we collaborate with scientists, engineers and experts to develop our restoration
techniques and gather as much information as possible.
We strive to improve and refine our methodology every day, while raising public awareness of the
importance of coral reefs.

Our missions

Preserve marine biodiversity and coral reefs

Coral restoration

In the field for over 20 years, our team succeeded in developing effective transplantation techniques to restore coral reefs. This restoration is based on an established process, consisting of several stages: manufacture of the structures, maintenance and daily monitoring.


Through our Edu'Coral, we engage with the public through speaking at schools and events, as well as other opportunities to raise awareness of the importance of marine biodiversity and the value of coral reefs. Our outreach extends to participating in association events, organizing waste collection drives, and various other activities.

Scientific innovation

Behind The Coral Planters is a team of highly qualified professionals with expertise in marine biology, marine engineering, and remote sensing. We are currently spearheading several innovative projects, including Coral'IA, an advanced monitoring and optimization tool. Using artificial intelligence, Coral'IA tracks and analyzes coral growth on artificial reefs, ensuring the health and sustainability of these vital ecosystems.

Reef monitoring

We rigorously monitor the growth and health of our corals. We also provide free access to all photos and updates online. We carry out more in-depth analyse on a regular basis: species analysis, survival rates. We also want to play our part in optimizing and standardizing the automatic collection of scientific data... Because we believe this is essential to preserving the world's biodiversity!
