Coral conservation and regeneration program
A Luxury boutique hotel on the East coast of Bali called Alila Manggis has teamed up with local fisherman and conservation organisation Yayasan Alam Indonesian Lestari to develop a coral conservation program!
The project aims to protect and restore the coral reefs surrounding the hotel by using artificial reef structures and implementing training and awareness programs for the fisherman and hotel staff, to educate them about the negative impacts of over fishing on habitats and the local economy.
The hotel is situated in the Karangasem region, which boasts 7 world-class dive sites and where fishing is the main source of income for most of the villages. The program hopes to ensure the future of the coral reefs in the region and ensure a stable future for the villagers who depend on it. Recovery and regeneration of the reef is the aim!
