iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

This platform is designed to help people emotionally connect with and support coral conservation. Users sign up and pay to 'adopt' a piece of coral and receive in return an artificial coral that bears a nameplate with information on the adopter, as well as gifts corresponding to different species of corals. Adopters can follow the virtual growth of the coral that they have adopted on the platform.

This is a very and funny way to engage people's interest in a growing environmental problem.
