Welcome to the Reef-World website


The Reef-World Foundation is a UK-based charity that has worked with local people to conserve coral reefs in South East Asia, the world centre for biodiversity, for over 10 years.


Our field of expertise is working with both the diving community and local fishing communities to provide information about coral reefs and the associated marine life and helping members of those communities find their own role in wider plans to protect reefs and related ecosystems in the face of a changing climate.

| Our Mission |

"To inspire and empower people to act in conserving and sustainably developing coastal resources, particularly coral reefs and related ecosystems."

|Marine Conservation|

Coral reefs are home to 25% of all marine life, a variety rivalling that of the tropical forests of the Amazon or New Guinea. This biodiversity translates directly into food security, income, sources of medicinal advances, coastal barriers to storms and a whole host of other benefits to people and ocean health. It is estimated that one billion people worldwide have some dependence on this natural resource for food and income. This is especially true for people from developing Asian countries where communities are highly dependent on reefs for their livelihoods and are the most vulnerable to the impacts of loss of reef health. However, coral reefs are under threat. Recent research indicates that already one quarter of global reefs are damaged beyond repair.
