Coral Gardeners is a mission-driven startup, created in 2017 by a group of young surfers and fishermen from the island of Mo’orea who came together after witnessing the alarming degradation of their home reef.

Today, we are made up of an international collective of passionate individuals – gardeners, scientists, engineers, creators, and advocates – determined to revolutionize ocean conservation and create a global movement to save the world’s coral reefs.


Communication is one of our core missions to raise awareness about what’s happening in our ocean. Social Media is an essential part of how we communicate and connect our online community with coral conservation. We are looking for an experienced and passionate Social Media Specialist to join our team to help us tell the story of the reef worldwide.
