Dear Brian, Thank you very much for supporting the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF). As a nonprofit organization, donations are crucial for success, and your donation of Raw Elements sunscreens along with the display will help us educate our divers how safe these products are for our corals as well as the environment. Our mission to protect and restore endangered coral reefs and educate and empower others to apply conservation strategies could not be achieved without the generous support of donors like yourself.
The end of 2013 marked our tenth year of coral transplanting and was a monumental success for CRF. We are also pleased to announce that our 2013 goal to transplant 10,000 corals was achieved and exceeded. The opening of our CRF Education Center has allowed us to take a more prominent position in the public eye. We are now able to host dive program lectures, volunteer training, educational opportunities for school groups, and our facility is open to anyone interested in learning about CRF’s history and success.
Last year also marked an exciting milestone in proving the health of our nursery and transplanted corals, as we were able to observe coral spawning activity among corals in our nurseries, laboratory and restoration sites. Witnessing successful spawning events of restored corals goes a long way to promoting natural reef recovery. With collaborative research efforts between multiple facilities, together we will further expand our knowledge of coral reef health and restoration.
Following our success in 2013, we have set the bar even higher, and are optimistic about our new goals of transplanting 20,000 corals throughout 2014. As we grow and expand our programs, we again thank you for allowing us to stand on the shoulders of your donation and hope that you will consider continuing your support of CRF in our mission to restore endangered coral reefs.
Kind regards, Ken Nedimyer, President and Founder
