“I had such an incredible, life changing experience on my trip to Cocodrilo. It felt so empowering to be a part of this program and to be able to help. There is so much to do and so much to see in this small town! I cannot wait to be involved in another program and return back to Cocodrilo!”

Coral reefs around the World are under increased threat from mass bleaching events caused from increasing ocean temperatures. In 2018, it was the International Year of the Reef to create further awareness on the plight of reefs with this blog piece showing people how to help make a difference for coral reefs around the World.
