Our Wish List

Do you have some extra room in your suitcase? Consider bringing an item from the list below on your next trip to Curaçao. Every little bit counts! By donating items and materials from our wish list that we need for different steps of the restoration process, you are making a tangible difference for Curaçao’s coral reefs.

Each item you see here on our wish list is a critical tool in helping us achieve our mission that you can donate. Click on any item to see an example of the brand or model that is the most effective for us to use. Each link will take you to a retailer, but feel free to shop around.

Since many of the links below are from Amazon, we invite you to link your Amazon account with our AmazonSmile nonprofit profile. When you shop on AmazonSmile (simply by changing any amazon.com link to smile.amazon.com), you will find the same products and prices as Amazon, but AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of every eligible purchase to Reef Renewal! Click here to link your account and support us every time you shop!

We try to keep this list as updated as possible. Feel free to send us an email at info@reefrenewalcuracao.org to further clarify our current needs or if you have any questions.

Please note: Items cannot be sent via mail at the current time. Please bring them with you during your next visit! If you are not planning to come to Curaçao in the near future, check out our Donate and Adoption pages for other ways to make your contribution to the future of coral reefs!
