ReefSavers is founded by a group of marine biology students passionate about conservation. After seeing the impact of coral reef decline first hand, ReefSavers was set up as a way to make an impact. Our team has since spread among friends, students and fellow lovers of the ocean.
In the fall of 2018 we entered our idea for ReefSavers in a university business competition and took 3rd. We similarly placed 3rd in another competition in February 2019. With the prize money we earned from these competitions, we began the process obtaining an official non profit status. The traction from these competitions and social media have allowed us to set up a project in Kiribati this summer.
