For divers interested in getting their hands wet and helping restore Bonaire’s reefs, it is possible to enrol in the PADI Reef Renewal Diver Specialty at Beyond The Corals. During a classroom session and 3 training dives, you’ll learn all about restoring the reef. After completing the course, you can sign up to volunteer with the foundation or at Beyond The Corals’ nursery. The Discover Reef Renewal dive is a great option for those who are not able to complete the full course. You can learn about the foundation, coral reef conservation and go on a dive to visit and help maintain our coral nursery at our house reef, Bachelor’s Beach!
Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire has been dedicated to restoring Bonaire’s corals reefs through innovative coral nurseries and restoration techniques since 2012. We wanted to be a part of that movement and since 2020 we are proud member of Reef Renewal. We help them to restore multiple coral species and educate people.
Want to get involved and give something back to the underwater world? Whether you want a glimpse behind the scenes, volunteer on a regular basis or help the foundation in another way, there is something for everyone. The Coral Adoption Program allows you to adopt a coral, nursery tree or thicket. We are proud to mention that all our five coral trees are adopted by our amazing returning guests. You can also donate directly to the foundation, which supports the foundation in restoring Bonaire’s reefs.
