SUPPORTING INDIANS TO GO DIVING TO MAKE THE WORLD A
APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR 2022
ABOUT CORAL WARRIORS
Coral Warriors is India's first ever diving grant that recognises the role that first hand observations during diving can make in combatting climate change. We need to see coral bleaching first hand to understand the reality and impact of climate change on life in water. Coral Warriors gives Indians who are passionate about climate change and want to make an impact in the space the opportunity to go diving and create projects of impact. Many other countries have grants for diving and underwater exploration, but this is the first ever grant in India.
