Students Dive into Marine Conservation

Villages in the Raja Ampat Islands depend on healthy marine resources for their survival, but many are unaware that coral reefs and marine life are suffering from the impacts of overfishing, dynamite fishing and climate change. The Conservancy is helping educate local school children — in the classroom and in the water — about the importance of conserving marine species. The children are sharing what they learn with their parents, which has led to increased support for marine protection and a decline in destructive fishing practices. Help us to continue spreading the word by supporting our work in Indonesia.
