20 Mar CTC Collaborates with Intrepid Foundation to Support Marine Conservation Programs in Bali
CTC has recently signed a partnership with Intrepid Foundation to support coral restoration in the Nusa Penida Marine Protected Area (MPA) and provide educational opportunities for public school children living near the coral restoration site. The Intrepid Foundation is the not-for-profit arm of Intrepid Travel, which started in 2002 with a mission to create a positive impact through the joy of travel, community, and connection. Travelers from Intrepid Travel are given a platform through Intrepid Foundation which allows them to support selected partners in the community they have visited and partners that are putting donations to effective and practical use.
Through CTC and Intrepid’s partnership, we aim to engage the global community in spreading awareness about the corals and ways to support marine conservation efforts. In line with CTC’s mission to inspire people to care for the environment, this partnership will allow CTC to have a wider reach through a variety of audiences throughout the world. The platform through Intrepid allows their travelers to contribute towards coral rehabilitation efforts.
Intrepid travelers visiting Bali will also have the opportunity to visit CTC’s Center for Marine Conservation and learn more about the biodiversity of the Coral Triangle, the importance of protecting coral reefs, and the many ways to spread awareness and contribute to ocean conservation. As part of this partnership, CTC recently hosted Intrepid Travel’s tour guides at CTC’s Center for Marine Conservation to learn more about the work that we do.
