Let's embrace a culture of World-Wise giving!
40% of coral reefs have already disappeared due to human activities and global warming. Scientists estimate if nothing is done in the next 5 years they’ll completely disappear from the Earth’s surface by 2050. That’s why we adopt coral for every new member which means you’ll help to rehabilitate coral reefs and contribute to healthy oceans and seas. Together we create a positive impact on our Dunia (World)!
Through our ‘adopt a coral reef’ program your subscription contributes to coral reef
conservation to save them from extinction. We donate 20% of each WeDunia Page and 30% of every WeDunia Gift Card to Coral Guardian,
an international non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of coral reef ecosystems,
restoring and protecting marine biodiversity. Coral Guardian transplants WeDunia’s adopted corals
in a particular area where reefs were previously damaged.
Each coral is being observed with ♡ and monitored scientifically.
