    MesoAmerican Reef Anniversary 2019

    On June 5, 1997, the Presidents of Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras, and the Prime Minister of Belize met in Tulum, Mexico and signed an agreement known as the Tulum Declaration. This agreement promised to promote sustainable use of the reef system and promised to establish coordinated conservation efforts and cooperative programs and projects. In 2007, the leaders of these nations signed a renovation of the commitment to protect the MAR and to commemorate this agreement March 10th was declared the Mesoamerican Coral Reef System Day.

    The Mayan Reef Alliance, developed by our partners Restore Coral, is the integration of the latest assisted coral reproduction techniques and coral reef technology with a scalable market based solution that allows Academia, Civic Society, Private & Public Sectors to participate and collaborate on the coral restoration of the Mesoamerican Reef.

    By engaging these sectors through an Alliance for the purpose of mitigation, resilience and replanting corals we can achieve the following:

    • New stock of biodiverse Corals for the already naturally protected areas
    • Research and education of the best methods of replanting coral
    • Development of emerging technologies such as robotics and A.I for the landscaping of marine ecosystems on an industrial scale
    • A Coral resilience program that includes cryogenization and coral genomes R&D with the goal of ocean geo-engineering
    • The spread of this coral farming knowledge around the world
    • Participation of universities and students for coral restoration in professional practices
    • Local communities participating in the construction of coral farms and artificial coral reefs
    • The creation of cooperatives responsible for taking drivers to underwater farms
    • An educational and transformations experience for tourists 

     

    50% of the Meso American Reef is located in Mexico, receiving over 15 million visitors every year. With the new Mayan Train, this number will grow by several million people more. Restore Coral is paving the way for a shift from traditional tourism to sustainability tourism in order to protect the 2nd largest coral reef system of the planet.

  • ¿Cómo se alimentan los corales?

     

    Answer

    Los pólipos de los corales formadores de arrecifes tienen una relación simbiótica con ciertas algas unicelulares, llamadas zooxantelas. Esta relación beneficia tanto a las algas como al coral. Las zooxantelas viven dentro de los tejidos del coral y capturan la energía del sol a través de la fotosíntesis, proporcionando así los alimentos para el coral. Hasta el 90% de los nutrientes que obtiene un coral ocurre de esta forma. A cambio, el coral les proporciona protección, acceso a la luz solar y los nutrientes del plancton que es capturado por los pólipos.

    Al igual que las medusas y las anémonas, los pólipos de coral también tienen tentáculos urticantes que utilizan para atrapar comida. Los corales se alimentan principalmente de noche, extendiendo los tentáculos en el agua corriente para atrapar el plancton, las pequeñas partículas de alimentos e incluso a veces peces muy pequeños.
