What is Hiri?
We created Hiri so that we could help build sustainability in rural villages and communities by teaching easy -to-learn methods of coral reef restoration. Coral degradation is an increasing problem, affecting not only marine species but our wellbeing as well. Rural communities are at risk right now. We are passionate about the oceans and realize that something must be done to help solve this significant problem.
In fact, you can help too. Browse through our Programs or buy a Product. For each product that we sell, we pledge over 60% towards our community based activities which help transform local villages into coral ambassadors who can take their livelihood into their own hands.
Help today, we can plant a coral tomorrow.
