The coral reefs are in great danger from the effects of climate change, and with what is thought to be only eight years to save them, quick restoration is vital. Canon has partnered with the Coral Spawning Lab to help document and share much-needed research.

Canon will provide state-of-the-art imaging equipment, such as the best Canon cameras and Canon lenses, so the researchers can create a database of photographic activity. The groundbreaking research being carried out at the lab is providing a deeper understanding of the mysterious coral reefs and has recently created the world’s first-ever predictable broadcast of coral spawning in a completely closed system.
