Indonesia’s coral reefs are a global treasure yet they are in danger from a wide variety of threats including dynamite fishing. In collaboration with Vila Ombak and Gili Eco-trust, Coral Guardian has conceived, developed, and installed the first and largest coral reef restoration program dedicated to educate people to marine conservation through an educative self-guided snorkeling park. Other organizations, such as The World Bank Coral Reef Rehabilitation and Management Project, or Coremap, helps communities throughout Indonesia revive damaged reefs and improve conservation efforts. Local fishermen are trained to monitor the reefs, and local schools include ecosystem conservation in their curriculum.
