Step 1 : theoretical course

A training manual explains theoretical notions of marine biology and the steps to follow for the development of a local coral reef conservation project.

Step 2 : practical training

Practical training will take place in various regional training centers. It will be led by a local expert around an already developed coral reef restoration project putting theory into practice and ensuring a certain amount of field experience. At the end of the course there will be a Coral Guardian accreditation award.

Our pilot project

Where does it take place?

Pulau Hatamin Coral Sanctuary: located in the north-west of Flores, next to Komodo National Park in Indonesia; at our request, this area was officially declared “Area of Rehabilitation” in September 2019 by the Indonesian government.


Local issues

Overfishing and dynamite fishing have affected the balance of local coral ecosystem and deregulated the entire food chain.


Looking ahead in terms of project evolution

Fishermen will be able to significantly help reduce pressure on marine biodiversity locally. This will result in improved living conditions for these communities through the regeneration of fish stocks.
