Join the largest mass coral

outplant in the region!

From November 27 to December 10, 2021

Coralmania is a massive coral outplant event of distinct species of corals, contributing to the conservation, restoration of biodiversity and coastal protection.

This initiative arose in 2016 lead by the Dominican Foundation for Marine Studies (Fundemar), Fundación Grupo Puntacana, Counterpart International, CEBSE and The Nature Conservancy (TNC), with support from the German Development Cooperation, GIZ.

This year it will have a regional impact, taking place in three countries almost simultaneously: Costa Rica, Honduras and the Dominican Republic.

This event will pay tribute to various Sustainable Development Goals to improve our planet.

# Coralmania2021 coincides with the "Decade of the Oceans" or the United Nations Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development (2021-2030), which seeks to change humanity's relationship with the ocean, as well as protect and restore the ecosystems and biodiversity. It also converges with the start of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030, which aims to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems on all continents and oceans.
