Corals are animals living in symbiosis with an algae called zooxanthellae. The bewitched kaleidoscope that we can see underwater is created by this algae. Isn’t it astonishing that such a small thing can color an entire reef? Add your coral to the reef by adopting one on our website.

We enjoy spending time capturing the beauty of the ocean. Our photographers spend hours in the water to get these shots. Here is @temoanapoole taking a photo of @ivanacook #coralgardeners #wethereef #savethereef

Sharks are the wisdom of the ocean. They are one of the oldest creatures on earth and one of the most vital to the ecosystem. We are grateful to have black tip reef sharks patrolling yearly around our island and always mesmerizing us. Today the sharks are threatened. During #SharkWeek we continue to work in order to protect all the ocean species from those apex predators to the corals. captured by @ryan_borne #savethesharks #savethereef #wethereef

Words of our ambassador @chelseakauai "Above water our day is filled with things. Everything feels so.. urgent. It's about productivity, connectivity, everything so beautifully loudly asking for attention. Underwater is quiet time. It's a game counted in heartbeats. How mindfully can we move, how deeply can we breath, how gracefully can we simultaneously be living and dying, loving and letting go" Join our movement and save the ocean with us.

Here is Tehapai, one of our volunteers, gently holding a coral of the species "Pocillopora verrucosa". Tehapai found this broken piece of coral on the sand; half of it was already dead. He will remove the dead part with coral clippers and attach a bamboo stem before moving the coral to our nursery for four weeks. When our scientists estimate that the coral is strong enough, Tehapai and the crew will plant it onto damaged areas of reef, giving it new life. Adopt your coral on our website.

We have had a pretty busy week traveling to Hawaii for the premiere of @savethereef documentary. We met a lot of amazing people, Hawaiian charities and visited wonderful places. We need to do something for the reefs there! In the meantime, our team in Tahiti was planting corals everyday. Spending 7 to 8 hours in the water a day! We are so motivated! Let’s Save The Reef!

We are surfers. Coral reefs sculpt swells and give us amazing waves. For many of us, surfing these reef break waves is our favorite thing. Let’s protect these treasures of the sea.

Here is a giant clam. The mollusk contributes to filter 4.5 gallons of seawater per day and keep our oceans clean. Fun fact, both corals and giant clam possess zooxanthellae (algae ) which give them beautiful colors and nutrients. Help us save them by adopting your coral on our website.

WE THE REEF. As seen on the picture, team member and content creator @temoanapoole is floating above a bleached reef in front of his house on the island of Mo'orea, Tahiti. We are currently facing a coral bleaching event. We put a lot of effort cleaning our coral nurseries and taking care of our corals. Our future depends on today's action.

This is our playground, the place we spent most of our time... The Ocean. Sharks are the key for a healthy reef ecosystem. They are at the top of the food chain and at the base we have the corals. For this reason we need to protect them. Here in French Polynesia we are lucky to have the world's largest shark sanctuary. Join our movement and adopt your coral on our website.

Here is one of our scientists, Romy, following the evolution of the corals we plant and improving our methods. She uses an underwater white plate on which she writes different informations such as the growth of the coral, how they react to their new environnement.
