What We Do
The Coral Triangle Center is a foundation based in Bali with programs across the region. From our Center in Bali to the corners of the Coral Triangle, we engage with people through training and conservation on the ground, developing capable marine managers who can protect the unique marine ecosystems of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste.
We do this through our programs:
Training and Learning
: delivering customized training courses and workshops to marine resource managers from all backgrounds about how to protect and manage coral reefs, strengthening the skills and capacities of existing and emerging conservation managers and leaders. Read more
Field Learning Sites
: helping to design and establish marine protected areas (MPAs) that can serve as living laboratories where practitioners carry out research, implement new technologies, and learn from each other. We empower local communities to draw on traditional resource management practices and modern science to preserve the marine and coastal ecosystems.
Learning Networks and forums
: building connections and networks for people involved in managing marine protected areas throughout the Coral Triangle region, and empowering individuals to take on leadership roles to impact on the ground. Read more
Public and Private Sector Partnerships: on outreach activities, such as staff training, promoting sustainable marine tourism practices, and school activities to engage students in fun, hands-on learning activities focused on protecting marine and coastal environments.
Center for Marine Conservation:
providing a space for students, locals, tourists, and companies with hands-on, interactive and experiential learning to be inspired to take action for the oceans, and amplifying our impact with global communities. Read More
