A collection of media-quality imagery and resources, made available FREE to support the global mission to save coral reefs.

2018 has been declared the International Year of the Reef, and it couldn't have come at a more important time. Coral reefs are in crisis – they could disappear on our watch and potentially within in our lifetime. It's not too late – together, we can solve this crisis. But first, we need to raise awareness. 

We've made all of these resources available free for non-commercial use so you can get creative and help make sure coral reefs are in the spotlight during this pivotal year.

Over the past five years, The Ocean Agency team has taken more than a million images of coral reefs as part of the XL Catlin Seaview Survey. To make sure reefs are in the spotlight during IYOR, we are making the best of them free to use (for non-commercial purposes) to help generate support and investment for coral reef conservation. In addition, some of the world’s top underwater and drone photographers have donated imagery to the Coral Reef Image Bank.


Sign up for a weekly dose of unique, creative, and some of the best coral reef imagery out there. After all, we could all use more #OceanOptimism in our lives...
