During the International Year of the Reef in 2018, ASTC partnered with the BNP Paribas Foundation to increase awareness of the value of and threats to coral reefs, and ways that scientists—with the help of the public—are working to save them.

We collaborated to produce the Corals Matter website, which houses tools to support action toward protecting coral reefs. A large-scale, interactive banner—created specifically for science and technology centers and museums—connects visitors to interviews with experts, high-quality images and 360° videos, clear messages about the state of coral reefs today, and collective solutions to preserve biodiversity. Download your copy of the banner.
