Coral Sites

Did you know the UAE’s coral reefs rank 38th in size globally?
Impressive as that sounds, they’re also in danger and could be gone in the next few years unless we act now!
The coral reefs in UAE are home to some of the most prosperous species of corals in the Arabian Gulf. Let’s come together and do our part to protect the country’s natural resources, raising awareness about their current state, and ensuring their survival #ForABetterTomorrow.

Get Involved

Here’s your chance to help protect the UAE’s coral reefs!
Enter Emirates Draw by purchasing a Pencil(s) to help us restore the coral reefs through our coral planting activities. We aim to conserve marine life, increase awareness about marine conservation and encourage everyone to do their part in building a better tomorrow.
Each purchase also gives you the opportunity to join our weekly draws, where you could win huge cash prizes. Get involved and make a difference!
