Female Emporment Conservation Project In Indonesia

How It All Started

In 2019 we started a coral restoration project called ‘Coral Catch’. The main goal of Coral Catch is to recover an area on the North of Gili Air which has historically been impacted by dynamite fishing, coral bleaching, coastal development, poor waste management, anchoring, heavy boat traffic and earthquake activity.

If You Educate A Woman, You Educate A Generation

We want to inspire Indonesian women to have a career in marine conservation. Because we believe that to truly learn to live in harmony with our environment, women need to be as much a part of shaping our collective destiny as men. For us, female empowerment is not about excluding men, but about creating more opportunities for women.
