About Us

We exists to raise awareness, build sustainable reefs, deliver one-of-a-kind experiences 

and create coral ambassadors around the world.

Doing good is in our DNA

ProReef (Formerly known as Hiri) is a social business ‘profit for purpose’ which is based on the Gold Coast (Australia) with a mission to bring coral conservation to as many people as possible, grow coral, raise marine awareness, and to engage with communities. There is a significant need for coral conservation as reefs are disappearing twice as fast as the rainforest. Currently, we have lost 20% and we will lose another 50% if we don’t act now (WWF, 2019).

Our journey began in 2018 when we worked with our first Coral Ambassador village, where we planted over 500 fragments of coral. We have worked with multiple communities and have established a major Coral hub in the heart of both Papua New Guinea and Fiji with nurseries containing over 2000 fragments of coral. Our work is continuing in these areas.

Coral reefs are already lost or severely damaged.

The decline continues with alarming speed. Many threats to coral reefs are caused by humans. These threats include overfishing and destructive fishing practices and climate change.

Many villages depend on coral for their survival, from fishing to potential tourist attraction, it is the source of many economic benefits.

ProReef exists to raise awareness, build sustainable reefs, deliver one-of-a-kind experiences and create coral ambassadors around the world.

Our Aims

Bring about significant environmental benefits above and below water.

Bring coral conservation to the population as a whole, no matter their education.

Allow anyone to be part of solving a global problem.

We Need Your Help

We want to connect the dots… Tourism and Reef Restoration.

We can all make an impact. You can be a part of it!
