Find out more about our work with Coral Guardian

Who are Coral Guardian?

Coral Guardian, are a French non-governmental organisation, founded in 2012 to protect and restore coral reef systems by working hand in hand with local communities, and raising awareness with general public. They work offshore Indonesia and since 2020, they have been working in the Med, offshore Spain – in the coastal region of Granada.

Why are coral reefs important?

Coral reefs are home to 25% of all marine specials, and vital to approximately 500 million people in the world for food, livelihood, and tourism income. Coral reefs help to absorb wave energy, reducing coastal erosion and limiting storm damage. Reefs provide homes to around 10-25% (depending on location) of all fish caught worldwide. The direct economic benefit of coral reefs is estimated to be around $29.8 BN – from tourism, recreation, coastal protection, fishing and biodiversity

What is the project EPI is investing in?

Coral Guardian have an environmental protection scheme that we are working with – we can ‘adopt a coral’ whereby we pay for a part of a coral reef to be restored for each marine contract that we win. Our donations go to marine conservation programmes, community outreach, and science research into coral restoration.

What are the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?

In 2015 the world’s leaders signed the Global Goals for sustainable development – a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty, tackle climate change and fight injustice and inequality for everyone by 2030.
Out of the UNs 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) the project that we support in Malawi tackles 4 – Good Health and Well-being, Gender Equality, Clean Water and Sanitation as well as Climate Action. This means that the project is recognised by Gold Standard, which ensures the project not only reduces carbon emissions but features the highest levels of environmental integrity and also contributes to sustainable development
