Their Royal Highnesses Prince William and Duchess Catherine got up close and personal with a project that is dear to Prince William’s heart, during their tour of Coral Vita Coral Farm in Grand Bahama.
The tour of the Coral farm took place on Saturday, March 26, 2022 as a part of the Royals’ Official Visit to The Bahamas. Since founding Coral Vita, Sam Teicher and Gator Halpern have been recognized as part of Forbes 30-Under-30 Social Entrepreneurs, Echoing Green and JMK Innovation Prize Fellows and WeWork Creator Awards Global finalists.
Prince William expressed fascination with the work being done at the Coral Farm, listening intensely during a summary of what they do at the Coral Farm, and asking questions about some of the various corals being grown at Coral Vita. Prince William and Duchess Catherine were invited to plant a Propagule, amangrove in the Mangrove Farm at the Coral Vita site. They both got their hands dirty, as they scooped up some of the soil to properly plant the Propagule.
Prince William and Duchess Catherine chatted with four young volunteers at Coral Vita farm, following the planting.
