Why helping coral reef matters

What are Coral Reefs?

Coral reefs are large underwater structures composed of the skeletons of coral. Coral are invertebrate marine animals. They extract calcium carbonate from seawater to create a hard, durable exoskeleton. Over time, new coral grow over the exoskeletons of their ancestors until massive submarine structures are formed.

The Issue

Coral reefs are dying at an alarming rate. According to 50reefs.org, we could lose all coral reefs by 2050. There are several factors impacting our reefs: pollution, overfishing, and climate change. The recent warming of our oceans in some regions has a devastating impact on many species of coral.

Coral reefs directly support over 500 million people as a food source and income. They protect our shores from storm surges. Reefs also support 25% of the oceans marine life. Oceans supply nearly 70% of the oxygen we breathe. The health of our oceans and our reefs impact other climates around the world. The good news is we can act and make a difference.

Some corals are less vulnerable than others to changes in ocean temperature. There are reef systems responding to restoration efforts. We created our #reef2leaf grant to do what we can to conserve this very important part of our planet.


The #reef2leaf Initiative

Since founding Wildhorn in 2015, we've desired to use the company for good. After examining many different charities and opportunities, we've decided to start a grant program called Reef 2 Leaf. The program focuses on solving problems that impact our coral reefs and forests. Our first grant will be made to help with coral restoration. Over the next three years we will financially support restoration efforts and actively educate the public about this important issue. Our brand ambassadors will use the hashtag #reef2leaf to help spread the word. By working to preserve reef systems, we can also positively impact the rest of the environment. While it starts on the reef it also helps the leaf!

Coral restoration is done by harvesting corals from underwater nurserys nearby reef sites. Those corals are then moved and planted directly into the existing reef exoskeleton. Over time, the reef re-grows and takes root in the site.

We'll be focusing our help on the coral reefs along the Florida Keys. The Florida reef system is the third largest barrier coral reef in the world. We will post more updates about our grant recipient soon.


Expert Thoughts

The good news is, some reefs are far less vulnerable to climate change than others and through science we can identify them.

Great new and improved mask

I love the mask and it’s definitely easier to breathe through, he only thing that I was a little disappointed in was that it’s lopsided when you go to put it on your head and that’s only because of the way it’s re-design, versus the old one was centered in the middle and distributed the weight easier when putting it on

Great fit

I have not got to use the mask yet but was so happy to receive the correct size I ordered. I had ordered 3 times from Amazon and received the wrong size every time.

Best all around !

Great Quality, Great Price, Great Comfort, Fast Shipping !!!! What more could you ask for?

SV2- A great mask!

I have tested the mask out in the local swimming pool and I have found it to seal nicely around my face. The face measurement that you do prior to purchasing is necessary. Can't wait to try it out in Grand Cayman. Fogging is minimal and I follow the directions and used some non-abrasive toothpaste on the inside of the mask. Breathing with the mask on is not much of a problem, but there is also some truth to the fact that breathing in the mask is not obviously the same as breathing air without a mask on. I have never worn a full face mask but this product seems to be very nice and I feel comfortable wearing it in the pool. There is plenty out there on the Internet to read regarding full face masks, so do your due diligence and simply follow the directions that are provided with this mask and you'll be fine.

Alta Wireless Headphones

Been using these for past 3 months. They work great in my Smith Ski Helmet, sound great, easy to turn on/off with ski gloves on, long battery life (couple of days skiing on each battery charge). Would definitely buy again.
