11th Hour Racing , sustainability partner to the Ben Ainslie Racing Team for America's Cup (AC35), are the first supporters of the Coral Garden Initiative. We are grateful for what is a legacy for Bermuda and a demonstration of belief in our coral restoration work.
11th Hour Racing's coral garden is filled with cultured juveniles of mustard hill coral, and supports preliminary investigations on the adaptation of micro-fragmentation techniques for brain coral, star coral, and mustard hill coral. To date results indicate a good survival; photographs taken on a regular basis are used to quantify growth.

Marooned Ocean is a Bermuda-based Foundation whose mission it is to work towards solving one of the worlds biggest problems; the health of our oceans. Solving this problem takes many forms. Marooned Ocean sells sustainable clothing and gear as one way to provide funding to various grass root ocean conservation projects in Bermuda and around the world. Luckily, Living Reefs Foundation was the first recipient of Marooned Ocean's donation! Their generous contribution supported the set-up of our coral hatchery through the purchase of coral specific lights for optimal growth. Marooned Ocean continues to give to ocean initiatives in Bermuda. Read more and visit their selection of unique T-shirts on www.maroonedocean.com
Living Reefs Foundation's very own benefactor. A great lady with a generous heart has given us the freedom to access the coral reefs surrounding us in order to pursue our work- a 29' boat, Lily Pad II, for which we are very grateful. Thank you for a very useful and valuable asset to our Foundation.
