11 Sep CTC Hosts High-level Officials at its new Center for Marine Conservation
This month, CTC hosted high-level officials at its new Center for Marine Conservation in Sanur, Bali. On September 11, 2017 CTC hosted officers from the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs for a discussion on the Nusa Penida Marine Protected Area. The officers were in Bali for workshop to discuss the proposed designation of Lombok Strait as a Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas (PSSA). A PSSA is an area that needs special protection through action by IMO because of its significance for recognized ecological or socio-economic or scientific reasons and which may be vulnerable to damage by international maritime activities.
On September 20 2017, U.S. Consul General Heather Variava and her team visited our new Center for Marine Conservation for a briefing about CTC’s recent activities such as the launch of our new faclity, updates on its USAID Sustainable Ecosystems Advanced (SEA) Project, outreach activities and possible future collaboration. Ms. Variava also had sneak peek at our Escape Room SOS from the Deep which will be unveiled to the public soon
