With the world’s coral reefs in decline due to global warming, there is still Hope. Hope Reef that is. It can even be seen on Google Earth and this reef in Sulawesi, Indonesia has shown an increase in coral from 5% to up to 55% since the project launched two years ago! 

The world’s coral reefs are slowly dying, and in a matter of decades, they may all disappear. But there is hope yet. With this new project to restore coral reefs, the feeling of hope is being spread globally, in fact, you can even see the message spelt out from thousands of kilometres up in the sky.

Scientists have predicted that with the way things are going, about 90% of the world’s tropical reefs will completely disappear by 2045. But it’s not all doom and gloom, as we shift to the beautiful, sunny coast of Sulawesi, Indonesia, the crystal clear waters are teeming with millions of species, including fish, flora, and is a newly built coral reef part of the world’s largest coral restoration program.

The program itself was announced only recently, but in fact, the restoration started over two years ago. Unfortunately, as the reefs begin to die, their vibrant colours fade away to a dull bleached white. However, the reefs serve more than just as tourist attractions, in fact, they are responsible for over 500 million people who are dependent on them for food, income and coastal protection.

“Reefs also supply millions of people worldwide with food, livelihoods, life-saving medicines, and protection against storms. It’s imperative that we scale up our work to protect and restore the long-term health of these vital ecosystems…”

Dr. Elizabeth McLeod, The Nature Conservancy’s Global Reef Systems Lead

In the two years that the restoration has started, coral cover has increased from 5% to up to 55%! And with more coral cover comes an increasing abundance of fish and even the return of species such as sharks and turtles.

“We hope our efforts inspire others to join us so we can all play our part in helping to prevent the exictinction of our coral reefs.”

Professor David Smith, Chief Marine Scientist at Mars In

The program’s goal is to restore upwards of 185,000 square meters of coral reef by 2029 – that’s about 148 Olympic Swimming Pools.

If you want to help make a difference, for every view received on the DINE Hope Reef story, which you can watch below, YouTube will make a donation towards the cause. This is the first time that funds from a YouTube channel have been monetised for sustainability reasons.

Even though we may not be able to visit the charming coast of Sulawesi, there is one thing we can do. The view from Google Earth shows a message for all of the world to see. The coral in these waters has’ been regrown to spell out HOPE – serving as a global symbol for awareness and positivity.
