Coral Research

We have lost 50 percent of the world’s coral reefs in the last three decades. If we do nothing, more than 90% of coral reefs will die by 2050.”
                         – Dr. Ruth Gates

The mission of the Gates Lab is to improve the prognosis for coral reefs by doing something. Your gift to the Gates Lab fund will provide Dr. Gates and her team at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) with valuable resources to perform experiments to enhance coral resilience, preserve and restore coral reefs, and ultimately sustain the important human services that reefs provide.
All gifts are tax-deductible.
