On June 28TH 2016 in Santa Rosa California a nonprofit organization, Pirate’s Coral was born with a mission to save the oceans coral and reef from extinction. Founder and CEO, Chad Strader, had a plan to change the way we are going to save the oceans coral and reef around the world.
Almost 26 months later Pirate’s Coral has initiated several patents to save the dying coral reef from extinction. Pirate’s Coral doesn’t just grow coral for the ocean, instead they use a patented process where they start by obtaining the PH and temperature levels of the coral distressed area where their sanctuary will be planted. After a PH and temperature reading has been determined Pirate’s Coral then takes coral fragments and places them in their nursery tanks where they slowly alter the PH and temperature levels, both above and below the targeted levels so that the coral will not die when the sanctuaries levels change due to climate change.
In addition to manipulating the PH and temperature levels that the coral will thrive in Pirate’s Coral uses a patented tri-metal process in its tanks that increases the coral growth rate up to 20+ times what is seen in nature thus creating a productive coral reef in as little as a year instead of the normal 15-20 years.
Unfortunately, this is a very strenuous process the coral is put though where only 80-90% of the coral remains strong enough to graduate from the nursery tanks and be promoted to life on a Pirate’s Coral sanctuary which consists of an environmentally cleaned vessel that has been modified with reinforced environmentally safe material and infused with bio-rock specifically designed to support an ideal reef ecosystem. In short, once the improved coral can leave the nursery tanks and are planted in their sanctuary Pirate’s Coral knows that it will be a productive piece of coral that will be able to thrive in nature and be able to withstand the ever-changing ocean environment.
Pirate’s Coral is currently working with entities in Southern California and Florida to bring new ideas on how the coral and reef can be saved. Pirate’s Coral is also in contact with, “The Great Barrier Reef Project” who just received the largest government grant of over 400 million dollars in Australia to see how we can help save The Great Barrier Reef. Now investment is needed to make these projects and many more a reality and accelerate the impact we can have by saving the oceans coral and reef from extinction.
