Coral Reef Education Portal
The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is proud to launch our brand new Coral Reef Education Portal! This custom-built online platform contains a comprehensive coral reef curriculum complete with lesson plans, quizzes, educational videos, interactives, and games designed to educate people about life on coral reefs.
2015 Annual Report
2015 marked an important milestone in our Foundation’s life – completion of the field-work for our Global Reef Expedition (GRE). However, the project is far from over as we bear down on the ominous task of analyzing the many terabytes of data we collected in five years.
The High Seas span our globe, covering half the earth. But they are unprotected. The UNESCO World Heritage Marine Programme, in close collaboration with IUCN, is exploring the potential of the 1972 World Heritage Convention to preserve places in areas beyond national jurisdiction that might be of Outstanding Universal Value. The work is made possible through the support of the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation and with additional support from the French Marine Protected Area Agency (AAMP).

Our education team heads back to Jamaica to continue the Jamaican Awareness of Mangroves in Nature (J.A.M.I.N.) initiative and see how the students' mangroves are thriving since our last visit in March.

The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation recently launched the Starfish Control and Removal (SCAR) Program to combat outbreaks of the deadly coral predator: Crown of Thorns Starfish (COTS). The new program will remove COTS during an outbreak, train others to do so, and provide a global database on COTS outbreaks.
