"Using the best science, Coral Cay provides the
  resources to help sustain livelihoods and alleviate poverty through the
  protection of coral reefs & tropical forests”

 
 
Coral Cay Conservation’s ethos embodies a framework grounded in science; aimed at providing the most cost effective solutions to marine and terrestrial conservation and supporting the local custodians of these threatened resources across the developing world. 
 

Coral Cay has been at the forefront of community-based coral reef and tropical forest conservation science since 1986. We offer our services to host Governments and NGO’s at no cost, providing them with much-needed technical expertise and manpower which would otherwise be unaffordable. Through this innovative approach, we have increased awareness on the importance and management of coral reefs for the future prosperity of tropical communities in developing countries through our global footprint of successful programs and international recognition.      

 

Our success is based on a holistic approach within three key areas: 1. scientific data gathering in support of environmental conservation 2. community outreach and education and 3. capacity building. Coral Cay Conservation has close relationships with internationally renowned marine research experts in the world. We have a Scientific Advisory Board, where we draw upon the lead conservation researchers around the world, if necessary, to assist us on our projects.

 

By becoming a Coral Cay Volunteer you can play a critical role in enabling us to provide the best possible solutions towards conserving endangered habitats and to meet the needs of the dependent communities. Volunteers are at the forefront of grassroots conservation science, helping gather crucial information about the status and diversity of coral reef and rainforest habitats in those locations where our efforts are most needed.
