The Reef Story

Dine Hope Reef today is a very different place compared to just a few years ago. Before restoration began in 2019, the silent seafloor was covered in dead, mobile grey coral rubble. Now, colour is everywhere you look. From every crevice, you hear the healthy crackling and whooping of fish and organisms as they return home.

Our coral reef restoration of Indonesia's Salisi’ Besar starts with writing the word 'HOPE'. We’ve made a 10-year commitment to the project, which will see us restore the rest of Salisi’ Besar as well as extend our work to other locations around the world in need of hope.

The making of
Dine Hope
Reef

Our marine scientists work with local island communities to create and securely lay Reef Stars on the ocean floor. These special steel structures help to rapidly rebuild coral reefs that have lost the ability to recover on their own.

Watch as we work together to attach coral fragments to hand coated Reef Stars. These fragments then begin to take on a life of their own and grow, eventually covering the entire Reef Star with vibrant coral.

Our coral reef conservation method has helped coral cover at Hope Reef rocket from just 10% to an impressive 60%—and we’re just getting started.
