WFCRC began it’s program development in St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles in 2009 with the first of eight programs focused on coral reef conservation. Below is an illustration of the impact areas covered by WFCRC conservation programs.


The area identified as “UAV Capture Area” is the area that will be captured by UAV’s utilizing aerial imagery at a 1.5cm resolution, making coastal auditing and change management a much more informed decision.

Goals of WFCRC Programs

Create Benefits to Local Stakeholders:

  • Collaboration with partners that are equally committed to real world conservation
  • Maintain business health for coastal constituents
  • Using current UAV technology, bring coral reef and beach decline management to a level never before seen
