The video above describes what the inventors aim to accomplish with these coralbots.  The team hopes to raise $107,000 within six month to demonstrate this technology in public with two specially adapted robots.  Their ultimate goal is to build a team of eight coralbots to deploy at reef sites in need.

Donations range from $10 to $5,000.  At the $25 contributor level, your name will be printed on a coralbot.  At the $1,000 contributor level, your name will be etched on a piece of artificial reef structure the science team will plant on their first restoration project.  At $5,000, they’ll name a whole coralbot after you (“or give it any name you indiciate, within reason”)!
