On the east coast of Bali in Indonesia, Padangbai is a small port town where tourism-related activities are on the rise. The main attraction for visiting tourists is the beautiful coral reef. However, unsustainable tourism practices and climate change are destroying the reef and the natural carbon sinks that coral offers. But some marine life are good at storing carbon like the algae that live inside of coral and seagrass.
By growing and protecting the coral and seagrass we can help to mitigate the effects of climate change by sequestering carbon and using them as tools to raise awareness amongst local community and the tourism sector.
In partnership with Livingseas, we’re working to restore coral and plant seagrass to protect biodiversity and promote eco-tourism in Bali.
