Calling in our Corals

Help restore the ocean with this interactive citizen scientist platform
In just three minutes help marine scientists in their ocean restoration work - attempting to bring life back to damaged corals.
Travel to the Philippines and 9 other locations around the world to help our latest mission and become a citizen scientist, as we create together the ocean’s next vital study on marine protection.
1 - Listen to a healthy coral reef and compare it to the sounds of an unhealthy reef
2 - Train your ear on different types of ocean sounds
3 - Click when you hear a fish sound
This crowd-sourced data will help scientists monitor ecosystem health, track illegal fishing, and measure success at restoration sites. With this project we hope to help communicate the scientific value of listening as our primary sense under the water by combining this with new revolutionary scientific research ‘The Sound of Recovery’, which shows the frequencies we can now play to call corals and life back to damaged reefs and dramatically accelerate underwater regeneration.
By turning our collective ear to the oceans and by listening out for sounds, we can help scientists monitor ecosystem health, track illegal fishing, and measure success at restoration sites.
