About ReefCause

Oceans have become a hazardous waste disposal area for industry across the globe. The effects of human activity and subsequent pollution of our water bodies adversely affect all marine life. And it is clear now, more than ever.

Large swathes of coral reefs are bleaching and dying out. As Earth’s oceans have become filled with microscopic plastic waste, the entire ecosystem has been widely affected. As with any intricately connected natural environment – this affects the corals greatly.

With rising ocean temperatures and widespread reports of coral reefs under threat, our initiative is aimed at creating more awareness and spreading important information to people, which is a crucial pillar of conservation
