Through the support of Carnival Foundation, The Nature Conservancy is identifying locations where industry and community are most dependent on marine and coastal resources – including key conservation priority sites close to where the company operates. The Conservancy’s work in these regions will help quantify the value of marine ecosystems and help develop mapping tools to guide investment decisions for conservation in the region. Additionally, support from Carnival Foundation will enable significant expansion of coral restoration initiatives across the Caribbean, and continue to advance important scientific research that shows how coral reefs and other natural systems can help reduce risks to coastal communities from storms and sea level rise.
The Nature Conservancy is a leading conservation organization working around the world to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. The Conservancy and its more than 1 million members have protected nearly 120 million acres worldwide. Visit The Nature Conservancy on the Web at www.nature.org.

In January 2010 the Conservancy’s U.S. Virgin Islands Coral Restoration program installed its first in-water coral nurseries. Since then the team has successfully propagated over 2,500 individual corals. Early in 2012 the restoration team transferred 1,022 nursery-raised specimens to seven locations off St. Croix and St. Thomas to help restore damaged reefs and increase genetic diversity.
