In 2019, the Delta Foundation began working with a professional marine conservation team to restore coral on Northeast Coast, recruiting corporate underwater diving volunteers to help build a coral breeding base; currently, 28 species and over 1,000 coral fragments are being fostered. The Foundation has also commissioned a landscape artist to create a meaningful art installation, "Birth", which has an egg-shaped appearance to symbolize the protection of coral birth, and will allow more successfully rehabilitated corals to return from the breeding base to the Chaojing Marine Protection Area, bringing more people closer to the marine ecology, and raising awareness of climate change and environmental issues.

Over the past two years, more than 70 corporate volunteers have participated in coral restoration, completing the first stage of restoration and transplanting fragments to the marine protection area. The Foundation has also worked with the Museum of Marine Biology to train corporate volunteers to become qualified members of CoralNet, an international coral reef monitoring network developed by the University of California, San Diego; the number of Delta volunteers now accounts for 80% of the total number of qualified volunteers in Taiwan. In the next phase, Delta will continue to cultivate more corals at the coral breeding sites and conduct routine maintenance and underwater operations. Delta is also working with coral rehabilitation experts to apply corporate LED and automated technologies and equipment to the cultivation of heat-resistant corals, thus ensuring the growth and conservation of heat-resistant coral species.
