How We Do It

Explore the World of Corals

Why are corals important?

Coral reefs are one of the most important ecosystems on our planet. They are home to 25% of all marine species and are a source of food for hundreds of millions of people worldwide. They also protect coastal communities from erosion and high waves.

Fascinating creatures

Corals are animals too! And very interesting ones. They work together with algae to produce their own mineral as a rocky skeleton. You will almost always see a coral colony too; many individual polyps that all combine togther.

What is the worry?

Besides local disturbances and pollution, coral reefs suffer greatly from increasing ocean temperatures and acidification. In the Maldives, a country that has little influence on large greenhouse gas emitting countries, the effects of a degrading coral reef will be felt greatly.

Special restoration technique

Mineral Accretion Technology (MAT) channels low voltage electricity through the coral tables. As electrons flow, calcium carbonate deposits accumulate on the structures, helping the corals grow up to four times faster than other propagation methods and significantly increasing survival rates.

Mozambique Forest Restoration 

In 2022 we engaged Eden Reforestation Projects to plant 3.7 million trees in Matica Sede, Mozambique, over a period of four years – starting from January 2022. A key component of the project is to use indigenous tree species, based on the mimbo forest type, which are planted by the local community. To date, 893,186 trees have already been planted.

Hornbill Reintroduction

The Hornbill is an important species for the island as it helps spread the seeds of bigger trees, which improves the biodiversity of the forest. Around 40 years ago, hornbills disappeared from Koh Kood, Thailand. The Soneva Foundation is working with the Hornbill Research Foundation to reintroduce hornbills on Koh Kood in Thailand.

Coral Propagation

The Maldives is an island nation with an enchanting underwater beauty. Corals play an important role in ocean biodiversity, with 25% of sealife living on the reef.  The Soneva Foundation has set up one of the biggest coral nurseries in the world using Mineral Accretion Technology (MAT).

Clean Water Projects 

760 million people globally still lack access to safe drinking water and 2.6 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services. The Soneva Foundation has funded over 500 projects in 53 countries that provide access to clean water or basic sanitation services to over 750,000 people worldwide.
