Corals can recover from bleaching if the intensity and duration of heat stress are not too extreme. Lease Islands reefs have proven resilient to stressors over hundreds or thousands of years, as suggested by the monumental size of some of their coral colonies. Check out the story of our team while doing Reef Health Monitoring in Lease earlier this year.

Coral Triangle Center has received a grant from the Government of Australia to provide direct practical training to increase blue carbon policy and technical skills for junior-level policymakers in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. The grant also aims to develop an online resource that participants can refer to for policy development activities beyond the workshop and can be used for global access.

Earlier this year, two students from Timor-Leste studying Marine Science at Universitas Udayana spent a month on the ground with Coral Triangle Center to learn how to manage a marine protected area. Both students - Dominica and Paula said they learned a lot during their one-month internship and took away valuable lessons that they can apply in managing the marine resources in their home country once they finish their studies.

CTC in collaboration with USAID SEA Project supported the implementation of a traditional conservation system in Lease Islands, Maluku. The Sasi system is a traditional law to manage fisheries resources in Maluku that has existed for hundreds of years. It prohibits the fishermen from catching fish and taking marine resources for a certain period.

Last month, Coral Triangle Center, in collaboration with The Body Shop Indonesia and Sustainable Suzy, co-hosted the film screening of 'Semesta', a film that focuses on seven communities that are working to address environmental issues and climate change. This movie shows how local leaders are leading voices of environmental protection through the perspectives of different religions and beliefs.

#EarthDay🌏 is here! We're all looking at the world from a different perspective, but let's not forget that #ClimateChange is still one of our greatest challenges.

🌡️ Every bit of warming matters
📆 Every year matters
🌍 Every choice matters

Deoxygenation of coastal waters may threaten coral reefs more acutely than ocean warming and acidification. Both global (climate warming) & local (nutrient enrichment from fertilizer & sewage) factors are to blame.
