Winners of the Earthshot Prize, Coral Vita turned up the volume on their mission to restore the world’s dying reefs. At their coral farm in Grand Bahama, they scaled up coral out-planting and restoration efforts, hiring nine new employees.
The Prince and Princess of Wales in November released a video exploring the reef with Coral Vita and the NYT covered the company's vital reef restoration work in the Persian Gulf.
Over 2023, they launched brand partnerships with Corona Beer and sneaker firm Cariuma, and are now one of The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism’s premier destinations.
The team, led by Sam Teicher and Gator Halpern, continue to ramp up coral production for the ‘BahamaReefs’ partnership, financed by the Global Fund for Coral Reefs, with a portion of the coral farm allocated for Bahamian NGOs to establish a mangrove nursery to restore forests destroyed by Hurricane Dorian.
