Coral Conservation Best Day Ever Shorts

Educational resources & donation included with every purchase. Learn more.

When you’re ready for the best day ever and want a pair of shorts that are fun, supportive, and equally comfortable on land or in the water.

Stony corals are essential reef-builders that form the foundation and framework for coral reef ecosystems. They do this by using calcium and carbonate ions in seawater to create limestone skeletons like the one this print is inspired by. These structures are home to some of the most biologically diverse habitats on Earth and help protect coastal communities from storms and hurricanes.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are critical underwater ecosystems that host and support a dazzling array of marine life and play a vital role in protecting coastlines from erosion, supporting fisheries, and driving tourism. These vibrant and biodiverse habitats are essential for maintaining the health of our oceans and sustaining both marine and human communities. Protecting coral reefs is key to safeguarding the balance of life in our oceans and ensuring a sustainable future.

The most significant problem facing coral reefs is black and white: climate change.

Climate change is exerting devastating impacts on coral reefs, primarily through rising sea temperatures and ocean acidification. Elevated sea temperatures lead to coral bleaching, where corals expel their symbiotic algae, causing them to lose their vibrant colors and leaving the corals weak and susceptible to diseases. Additionally, increased atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are driving ocean acidification, which hinders the ability of corals to build their calcium carbonate skeletons. These combined stressors make corals more susceptible to diseases and hinder their ability to recover from physical damage, posing a significant threat to these vital marine ecosystems and the rich biodiversity they support.

Most comfortable water shorts ever

These are the most comfortable, best-fitting shorts I've found. The material dries quickly and is soft, the inner shorts add some security and comfort, and the pockets are fantastic. I got lots of compliments on them, too.

Super comfy, all-purpose shorts

I love that there’s three pockets, one back pocket with zipper, and the built in underwear are so soft! These are gender neutral so both my husband and I can wear them. They are great for beach, boat, swimming, and snorkeling. Drawstraing waist means it stays on but doesn’t squeeze my gut. I highly recommend these shorts!

Look fabulous, fit well

Such a cool print! The pair (XL) fits me well though I haven't had a chance to wear them longer than to try them on. The only modifications that I'd like to see are 1) a cord lock on the drawstrings, and 2) a mesh inner lining rather than a tight-weave inner lining - I think a mesh lining would be cooler.

Perf

Came just as I expected, soft, fit perfect, and the design was exactly how it looks online.
