The 50 Reefs initiative was conceived by The Ocean Agency during the filming of Chasing Coral, a Netflix Original Documentary.
It was developed in partnership with the Global Change Institute at The University of Queensland and the Wildlife Conservation Society and funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, The Tiffany & Co. Foundation and Paul G. Allen Philanthropies.
The partnership was established in 2017 with the ambitious goal of identifying a global portfolio of coral reefs with a good chance of both surviving the impacts of climate change and being able to help repopulate neighboring reefs. The 50 Reefs initiative has resulted in the first-ever research of its kind to create a global portfolio of coral reefs anticipating climate-related risks. The scientific study, published in June 2018, can be read in Conservation Letters.
