ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY CORAL REEFS

Mote Marine Lab Logo10% of profits from your purchase will go directly toward the Mote Marine Laboratory's Elizabeth Moore International Center for Coral Reef Research & Restoration, to help study and restore various coral species to protect Florida's Coral Reef from functional extinction. Coral reefs are one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. In fact, they offer so much diversity that they are considered the underwater rainforest. Throughout the globe corals are declining from ocean warming, acidification, pollution, disease, and human interaction. In North America, there is only one continental barrier reef - Florida’s Coral Reef. Since the 1970’s, Florida’s Coral Reef has lost approximately 90% of its stony corals. Mote Marine Laboratory Scientists are fighting for its recovery. Using science-based restoration techniques, Mote has outplanted nearly 100,000 coral fragments since 2008. ​Corals outplanted by Mote have 90% survival after their first year, underscoring that our scientific approach is making a real difference. Florida's Coral Reef has always been a delicate and intricate ecosystem, but today, its future truly hangs in the balance. Now, Mote's research and restoration efforts matter more than ever.

Mote scientists are studying coral genetics and biology with the goal of growing and restoring corals that can withstand long term challenges, including the climate-change impacts of warming water and ocean acidification.​ Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium’s Elizabeth Moore International Center for Coral Reef Research & Restoration​ is spearheading efforts to revitalize coral reefs in the Florida Keys.​ When coral reefs decline, so does our "shield" against storm impacts. During Hurricane Irma in 2017, Looe Key reef saw swells exceeding 20 feet while Mote's Florida Keys campus nearby saw only 5-foot swells, thanks to the reef's protection. Coral reefs also support diverse marine life, including sportfish species that make Florida the fishing capital of the world. Florida's Coral Reef is an ecotourism destination, and in total it's estimated to contribute more than $8 billion to the state's economy.

Florida's Coral Reef is truly unique, and so is Mote's effort to restore it through science. Mote is the only organization able to complete every step for resilient coral restoration, including: coral sexual reproduction; rearing corals from babies (larvae) to adults; identifying coral genetic varieties and testing them for resilience to stressors; producing more corals through asexual fragmentation; planting corals onto depleted reefs; monitoring their success; and using adult corals that we've raised as parents to start the cycle again. Your purchase includes a 10% donation for Mote's coral research and restoration. Thank you for helping to protect and restore Florida's Coral Reef for generations to come.

Great pattern but not great fit

The design is beautiful with bright and contrasting colors but the fit is odd. The top is a bit short and the seam down the crotch gives an unpleasant look (I won’t spell it out but you know what I mean). Love the fabric. Hope they will revisit the cut.

Paying It Forward

I was delighted to see the beautiful color of coral on the workout pants. The added bonus of funding research to save coral reefs made the purchase gilt free. Then upon receiving them in the terrific reusable packaging I thought it can't get any better. But reading they were made with plastic bottles!!!! Are you kidding me!!! It just keeps getting better!!! Thank you for your amazing product and all your creativity in creating such a great product. I also had a chance to watch your YouTube episode on Salmon....your absolutely on point!!! Mother nature & her divine eco-systems are resilient and a force to be reckoned with or a force to thrive with in a loving & responsible & respectable manner. Thank you again!

Durable, flexible, versatile. My favorite Leggings

First off, this print is just mouth-watering for a coral nerd. These Leggings are my go-to. Just when I thought these leggings couldn't get any better, WL improved the durability of them and added POCKETS! I work on and in the water every day, and have truly put these leggings to the test. The fabric is so durable and doesn't fade with salt or sun. They are comfortable wet or dry and I don't get that antsy feeling to get out of them when they are wet. They seem to dry relatively fast and keep my skin warm with just a simple layer in the water. These leggings are also great for helping slide into that thick winter wetsuit. If not in the water, these leggings are great for workouts, runs, lounging, or traveling. I absolutely love them, I guess that is why I have at least 8 pairs....

Also, In regards to the customizable length I have would never dare to take scissors to such a masterpiece, but if you wish to adjust the length temporarily, it is quite easy. I pull the leggings from my shin area upward, so that the bottom seam is to the length I want. I then take the extra material bagged up around my knee/upper shin, and fold it over towards the bottom seam. It is easy, doesn't have to be readjusted throughout the day, and not a huge commitment!
