Discover the innovative concept of Coral Heroes and the teams behind the project

 

How does it work?

Coral Heroes creates links between you and NGOs actively involved in marine conservation in the coastal communities of South-East Asia.

Your subscription allows Coral Heroes to provide stable funding to various field players for the installation and maintenance of coral nurseries.

This enables our partners to recruit and train people from local communities in establishing and maintaining coral nurseries.

This method promotes the importance and knowledge of marine ecosystems to the people who depend on them and gives them economic value.

Team Tioman

Malaysia

Team Tioman

On Tioman Island, located east of the peninsula of Malaysia, the Reef Check Malaysia team is led by Alvin Chelliah, Hasnieza Razali and Shahir Yaman. They have been constantly working for several years to protect maritime areas, preserve corals, reduce waste management problems and involve locals in the process.

We can today see the impact of their work both on the island and under the surface of the China Sea!

The nurseries installed here are built from glass bottles, in order to answer the important problem of glass recycling on the island.

Team Mantanani

Malaysia

On Mantanani island, where there is a severe impact of mass tourism and a dynamite fishing tradition, Adzmin and his team of young volunteers are rolling up their sleeves every day to help the island community.

Starting with education, they are increasing awareness of environmental impacts and have implemented a plastic-recovery system in addition to the installation of coral nurseries. The dedication and innovation of the local team has no limits!

Our partners

Coral Heroes is partnering with local organizations that have been present on the field for several years and are engaged in marine rehabilitation and local empowerment.

Thanks to your subscriptions our partners can benefit from a steady stream of income allowing them to implement their ideas and, as a result, improve their communities and the environment.
