On “Black Friday” rather than running out to the nearest mall, Adopt-A-Coral™ from Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF) instead! CRF is a non-profit conservation organization created to develop off-shore coral nurseries and reef restoration programs for critically endangered coral reefs at local, national, and international levels. The mission of CRF is to develop affordable, effective strategies for protecting and restoring coral reefs and to train and empower others to implement those strategies in their coastal communities.
I’ve already adopted three corals – Mother’s Day (see 5/10/11 post “An alternative Mother’s Day bouquet, thanks to the hard work of Coral Restoration Foundation”), Father’s Day, and the third to the Property & Environment Research Center (PERC) as gift from the 2011 Enviropreneur Institute class (http://percolatorblog.org/2011/09/20/return-on-investment/). With the holidays coming up, I’m planning to get several more as Christmas gifts.
