TAILS pool donates through two methods every month. We donate 50% of our stake pool block rewards to Coral Restoration Foundation. Our Coastal Cure program raises monthly funds through NFT collection sales featuring ocean species.
"With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you're connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live. Most of the oxygen in the atmosphere is generated by the sea."
- Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer
We started our pool with the goal of teaching our children that you can be the change you want to see in the world.
Our stake pool invests in the future of the planet by undertaking and implementing environmental action and Cardano crypto education while contributing to the improvement of our earths ecosystem through Coral Restoration Foundation™. Working to restore and protect our oceans is near and dear to MermADAs heart. As a mother she wants to leave a healthier planet for her children to enjoy, as a woman in tech she is humbled to inspire other ladies and strives to be a worthy role model for her daughters and other women in cryptocurrency.
Coral reefs are complex and ancient habitats. -They have been a feature of life on Earth for around 500 million years.
They are a critical component of life in the ocean. Often referred to as “rainforests of the sea,” coral reef ecosystems are one of the most biodiverse in the world. Around 25% of all marine species rely on coral reefs, including sharks and sea turtles, crustaceans, and schooling fish. Florida’s Coral Reef is the third largest barrier reef in the world and the only barrier coral reef in the continental United States. We currently stand to lose all shallow-water coral reefs by the end of this century. This is why we donate 50% of our block rewards to Coral Restoration Foundation™.
Corals are resilient and have been resilient for millions of years. Like any group of organisms, however, their resiliency comes from evolution's ability to naturally select from a diverse wild population. Without a genetically diverse wild population, evolution's selective power in the face of environmental change is limited, and the population's resiliency is lessened. Florida’s Coral Reef is the third largest barrier reef in the world and the only barrier coral reef in the continental United States. Coral reef ecosystems are important for human subsistence, fisheries, tourism, shoreline protection, and yield compounds that are important in the development of new medicines. This is why we also chose Coral Restoration Foundation™ as the charity to focus our NFT project Coastal Cure on.
