As part of our commitment to stay involved in the communities where we work, we recently partnered with the Coral Triangle Center (http://www.coraltrianglecenter.org) to plant new coral in the waters off these islands. Jaya, Marthen, Julia and the rest of the team at the CTC chose to plant branching Acropora corals, which are a threatened but important shallow water coral. Our hope is that these new corals will replace some of those that have been damaged by unruly boat traffic in the area creating habitat for fish and keeping our oceans healthy.
If you are in Nusa Lembongan, stop in and have a look to see how they are growing! Or better yet give us a call and we can organize a trip with the folks from the CTC.
