Join and catch this live webinar tomorrow!🚨HAPPENING THIS THURSDAY!🚨
Thursday, August 27
8:00 pm Singapore time (GMT +8)

Brought to you by 75 Indonesia Maju, Thoughtful Indonesia and The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia, join Rima Demensah, together with her guests, Christopher Harvey and Marthan Welly, as they deep dive into the coral triangle in Indonesia, its state, and the paradox behind this paradise!

Moderator:
1) Rima Saradiani Demensah (#Indonesia) Miss Scuba 2014

Speaker:
1) Dr. Ir. Budhi Hascaryo Iskandar, Msi. (#Indonesia) Deputy Dean of Resources, Co-Operation and Development Affairs, IPB University
1) Christopher Harvey (#SouthAfrica) General Manager, PT. Papua Diving Resorts and RARCC (Raja Ampat Research and Conservation Center)
1) Marthan Welly, S.Pi., M.Si. (#Indonesia) Marine Conservation Advisor, Coral Triangle Center (CTC)

Rima Saradiani Demensah

Rima Saradiani Demensah known as Rima Demensah is passionate with an underwater world and talking. She is a Miss Scuba Indonesia 2014 and represent Indonesia for Miss Scuba International at 2014. Now she become a presenter on TV.

Dr. Ir. Budhi Hascaryo Iskandar, Msi.

Budhi Hascaryo Iskandar, has been diving since 1986 which led him to pursue scientific diving. Some scientific diving expeditions in Indonesia have done together with the Fisheries Diving Club FPIK IPB Bogor where he was one of the founders. A career as a lecturer and researcher at the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences since 1991 has brought him closer to the underwater world.

Christopher Harvey

Growing up in sub-tropical Zululand, South Africa, surrounded by beautiful beaches and wildlife parks, Chris always believed there was a way to earn a living whilst allowing him to follow his passion for the outdoors. He became a PADI instructor in 2008, and since then he has dedicated his life to the underwater world and to teach others not only to dive but also the importance of conserving the fragile ecosystems below the water’s surface. Not long after becoming an instructor, every time he read a dive magazine he was overwhelmed with an urge to come to South East Asia. After working in Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines, in 2015, he fulfilled his dream of working in Raja Ampat, which is – in his words – “the Holy Grail for nearly all divers”.

Marthan Welly, S.Pi., M.Si.

Marthen is CTC's Marine Conservation Advisor and focuses on three key areas: government relations at the regional level, national and provincial levels; MPA policy, regulations and outreach. He also has a technical role at the Center for Marine Conservation with two key components: training and outreach with dive and boat operators, and promoting and implementing sustainable marine tourism activities in MPAs. Marthen was the Field Learning Sites Manager since 2011, managing all learning site activities. This includes all Nusa Penida MPA management support and on-site training activities, as well as the design, development and management planning support to the emerging Banda Islands MPA network and potential Atauro learning site development in Timor Leste.
