Three-quarters of the world's coral reefs are in danger of dying. The rapid decline of these complex ecosystems has significant social, economic and environmental impacts around the world.
Help us restore Serangan Coral Reefs: Adopt a Coral here>
Serangan, or Turtle Island, sits off of the SE coast of Bali. The island used to be a turtle breeding ground with coral reefs frequented by divers. But all coral reefs around have been dredged to extend the island up to 4 times its original size for a construction program who never got finished, so most part of the island is a flat unused land.
We are working with a local community on site, Karya Segara, educating them and empowering them to conserve marine ecosystems and sustain community livelihoods by valuing biodiversity and education.
We already have restore about 250m2, over 800 corals have been transplanted on 20 artificial reefs. Corals are coming from our culture tables nearby.
Our objective is to restore 2500m2 over the next 5 years. This zone is actually under process of being approved as a Marine Protected Area of 2Ha.Help us restore Serangan Coral Reefs: Adopt a Coral here>
