Since the 50 Reefs study was published by Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Vibrant Oceans Initiative in 2018, NGOs, national and local governments, and academic partners have used it to prioritize coral conservation investments and on-the-ground activities in the identified regions. This report undertook a landscape assessment of conservation motivated by the 50 Reefs study, as well as complementary activities to-date. Our partner, Blue Earth conducted interviews with representatives from NGOs and funding organizations, including VOI grantees, funders supporting activities in 50 Reefs geographies, and organizations implementing activities that are directly informed by the 50 Reefs study. This report summarizes Blue Earth’s landscape assessment, discusses the impacts of conservation efforts inspired by 50 Reefs, and identifies opportunities for VOI and its partners moving forward.
