The Ocean

Working together across a wide variety of disciplines, Voyacy and our partners are striving towards a restorative future for everyone.

The Red Sea

Voyacy is driving coral reef restoration combined with innovative resort destination design at a scale never before imagined.

Coral Reef Restoration Initiative

In 1999, Philippe Cousteau and Dr. David Vaughan launched the Coral Reef Restoration Initiative. The project was a pioneering research effort that tested the viability of growing corals in an aquaculture facility in order to plant them onto damaged coral reefs. It proved a success and paved the way for the entire coral aquaculture industry. 25 years ago, Voyacy's team paved the way for all other coral aquaculture programs to come, and we are still leading the way.


Voyacy's Chief Scientist Dr David Vaughan was instrumental in a coral restoration project in Belize that achieved remarkable results and proved the efficacy of active reef restoration using his microfragmentation technique.

World Expos

Led the design, construction, and management of the United States Pavilion at the World Expo: Living Oceans and Coasts in Yeosu Korea. CEO and Founding partner Philippe Cousteau served as spokesperson representing the United States at the Expo.
