It is an enormous challenge for Pacific Island communities to address over-fishing, pollution, and climate change—the causes of coral reef decline.
In response, OneReef has developed an entrepreneurial model that brings together communities and a second party—coral reef investors.

Communities commit to protection and sustainable management. Coral reef investors provide the unique financial and technical package communities need, enabling them to meet the challenge. Effort is sustained because communities benefit from jobs, skills, and healthy reefs.
The model is already being used to protect over 300,000 acres in Micronesia. OneReef's mission is to scale this model until reef decline is reversed.
