15 Oct Merging Art, Science, and Conservation at the 3rd CTC-Credit Suisse Fundraising Dinner in Bali
CTC, in collaboration with Credit Suisse, held its 3rd fundraising event for this year on October 15, 2016 at the site of the planned CTC Center for Marine Conservation in Sanur, Bali. The event featured performances that merged art, science and conservation messages.
The highlight was a Wayang Samudra (Ocean Puppet) performance that highlighted the impact of trash to marine life, and an adaptation of the traditional Balinese Kecak dance by schoolchildren that carried the message of sustainable fisheries. There were also presentations from CTC Executive Director Rili Djohani regarding the progress of the CTC Center for Marine Conservation development and updates from the field from Mr. I Nyoman Karyawan, head of the Nusa Penida Marine Protected Area Management Unit. The event was open to guests, members of the Friends-of-CTC program and corporate partners who have worked with CTC in our outreach campaigns this year as well as those that donated raffle prizes for guests. A fun and educational night was had by everyone! (View more photos from this link. Photo Credits: Firmansyah Cakman and Rizky Pranata)
