Delta discussed its coral restoration initiative, heat-resistant coral genes and blue carbon issues with world-class experts at the COP27 Blue Belt Action Center

TAIPEI, November 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Delta Electronics Foundation participated in the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change held at Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt hosting a side event and an Action Hub event on November 16, in which she shared her coral restoration initiative with the international climate science community in collaboration with the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium, the Partnership for Observation of Global Ocean (POGO), and the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF). Genes of corals resistant to high temperatures and blue carbon ecosystems were also part of the event’s discussion, which overall received enthusiastic responses from international opinion leaders.

Wim ChangCEO of the Delta Electronics Foundation, said: “Delta started this coral restoration project on its 50th anniversary and we have achieved the goal of planting 1,000 corals ahead of schedule by the end of this year. We will continue to work with the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium, the National Museum of Marine Science & Technology and conservation groups to achieve the goal of planting another 10,000 corals over the next three years. We also use Delta LED lighting and automation technologies to enhance biodiversity that helps restore marine ecosystems round Taiwan, which are threatened by increasingly frequent sea heat waves. These ecosystems may gradually recover once we reach our net zero emissions goals.”

Te-Hao Chen, Vice President of the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium, also visited Egypt in person to share his progress of Taiwan research on heat-tolerant coral cultivation and gene conservation. He said the Aquarium will commit to selecting and cultivating heat-tolerant corals to develop a “coral ark” where living coral and gene banks can be created.

Margaret Linenthe POGO representative and an international expert, shared the efforts made by the Ocean Biomolecular Observing Network (OBON) and how to contribute to coral reef ecology through observation. Yu-Hsuan YehAn EJF campaigner, he focused on the issue of blue carbon assets in the ocean and further stated that carbon can be sequestered and stored through a well-functioning blue carbon ecosystem, thereby reducing the effects of climate change.

Different from traditional conferences, Action Hub is held in a semi-outdoor space in the Blue Zone to allow participants to participate freely. Delta Electronics Foundation also shared its recently launched NFT Restoration Scheme by joining hands with Asia University and Formosa Art Bank DAO (FAB DAO) in the event, aiming to increase public attention through a variety of topics. Meanwhile, the Delta Electronics Foundation set up a booth in the Blue Zone during COP27 to display coral restoration equipment, which also facilitated the exchange of ideas with several international climate advocates.
