Pirate’s Coral is a nonprofit entity that was born with a mission to bring education and awareness to all generations, to preserve, monitor and save our oceans coral and reef from extinction with Pirate’s Coral environmentally safe and patented sanctuaries which produce coral growth rates at 20+ times what nature alone can achieve!
All donations go to building and planting our environmentally safe sanctuaries in coral stressed areas throughout the world. Pirate’s Corals sanctuaries have stable healthy coral growing on them within 72 hours of the sanctuary being planted. This creates the immediate growth boost the ocean needs to quickly start producing new healthy colonies. In addition, Pirate’s Coral also monitors all its existing sanctuaries to gauge what native species of coral does best on the actual reef, thus assuring all of Pirate’s Coral sanctuaries are successful.
All Pirate’s Coral sanctuaries are designed to be planted around stressed, dying or dead coral reefs. Pirate’s Coral go to sanctuary consists of an environmentally stripped and cleaned vessel, (At least 75 feet long) that has been modified with reinforced environmentally safe metals and infused with a patented bio-rock substrate specifically designed to support an ideal reef ecosystem while also being strong enough to withstand the worst ocean currents.
In addition, Pirate’s Coral has a secondary sanctuary is used in areas that has limited space and cannot accommodate a sunken vessel. This secondary sanctuary is very customizable and contains a centerpiece with a footprint of approximately 15 X 15 feet and can contains as many, “Pods” designed to look like natural rocks as needed in the area. Again all parts of the secondary sanctuary contain reinforced environmentally safe metals and infused with a patented bio-rock substrate specifically designed to support an ideal reef ecosystem while also being strong enough to withstand the worst ocean currents. In addition to being an attraction for recreational divers all sanctuaries will have lab grown indigenous coral, (See How We Do It) that have been adapted to flourish in the ever-changing oceans climate.
Pirate’s Coral believes saving our oceans coral and reef is just the starting point of what needs to happen. Pirate’s Coral believes that involvement and education is a key function in making a difference and healing our oceans for generations to come.
Our goal in the area of education is to create a curriculum based on ocean preservation to be used for elementary school aged children around the world. We want to educate the younger generation on the importance of not only saving our fragile oceans coral and reef but also preserving the Pirate’s Coral process of planting its successful sanctuaries.
