Our Mission

We get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning us our day very difficult.

Our mission is to support NGO Gili Matra Bersama in protecting and restoring the coral reef environment within the Gili Matra Marine Recreational Reserve and to help them to create the first recognized shark nursery ground in Indonesia by 2026.
