Advanced Coral Toolkit

Funding new biotechnologies with the potential to enhance coral resilience and restoration efforts

We created the Advanced Coral Toolkit funding program to support the development and field testing of new biotechnologies that have the potential to greatly benefit coral resilience and restoration efforts.

ANNOUNCING: Revive & Restore-funded Technique Could Facilitate Rapid Cryopreservation of Coral Species

Scientists at the National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, Texas A&M University, and UC Berkeley announce the first successful technique for cryopreserving and reviving entire coral fragments. This proof-of-concept project, funded by Revive and Restore, opens the door to collecting and preserving coral fragments easily and rapidly at an urgent moment for coral worldwide.
