Plant-A-Coral with Taylor & Francis' Open Access Membership

Get recognized for doing your part to save our planet!

Did You Know?

Coral reefs shelter 25% of marine life and provide food to millions of people worldwide. It acts as a natural barrier that prevents massive storms and floods, protecting coastal cities and communities. Unfortunately, global warming has caused a catastrophe to the coral reefs' ecosystem. This has alarmingly caused more than half of the world's coral reefs to die at an unprecedented rate in the last 30 years. 

In this initiative, Taylor & Francis has partnered with Garden City Fund in the hopes of supporting habitat enhancement efforts.

Institutions will get a chance to sponsor a coral under the Garden City Fund's "Plant-A-Coral Seed-A-Reef Programme".
