Planting Seeds of Change with Coral Gardeners

Windstar has partnered with Coral Gardeners, a Mo’orea (French Polynesia)-based international collective of scientists, engineers, and advocates dedicated to saving the coral reef. The team works to build, maintain, and monitor thousands of corals with the goal of restoring the ocean one coral at a time. All guests sailing on a cruise in French Polynesia can also contribute to the cause with the option to adopt a coral for a donation of $35 per person guest.
