Did you know coral reefs only cover less than 1% of the ocean, but are home to almost 25% of all known marine species? However, climate change serves as the biggest threat to our beautiful coral reefs. So there has been a sizable loss of keystone coral species. We mean several of which are now listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
“This Coral Reef Restoration Project is vitally important to our research efforts,” said Dalton Hesley. Dalton is the senior research associate at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School. Also director of the school’s Rescue a Reef Program. “Our lab has worked relentlessly. All to understand the factors influencing coral growth and survivorship. So this initiative allows us to take even more significant steps in this endeavor.”
As seen through Canon’s corporate philosophy of Kyosei, which the company defines as all people regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future, sustainability efforts are top of mind— with the end goal of working together with our employees and customers to build a better world for future generations. This commitment plays an integral part of the company’s management structure, product design, manufacturing and corporate culture, and thus has inspired many special corporate programs such as this at both the global and regional level.
To take a deeper dive into the expedition, please see a recap video captured with Canon’s imaging equipment.
