Coral Cay Conservation (CCC) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation that was established in 1986. It is dedicated to helping sustain livelihoods and alleviate poverty through the protection, restoration and management of coral reefs and tropical forests.
Sadly, 30 to 40 per cent of the world’s coral reefs have been destroyed or are beyond recovery and more than half of the world’s rainforests have been destroyed.
These habitats are vitally important. Coral reefs shelter over 100,000km of coastline from storms and floods, and provide livelihoods and food security for hundreds of millions of people, while rainforests act as the world’s lungs converting carbon dioxide into oxygen.
British Airways has supported Coral Cay Conservation for more than 15 years through donating flights and complimentary excess baggage. This support has helped CCC in its work to establish protected areas, raise awareness of the importance of coral reefs and rainforests as well as developing alternative livelihoods for those who live in some of our most precious habitats.
You can volunteer to be trained in reef conservation, donate or, as a business, sponsor some of these important activities. To find out more, log on to ba.com/community or visit coralcay.org.
