The protection of marine life is essential and we help to protect the marine ecosystem within the Thousand Islands.Global warming has a major impact on the reef and on all marine life.
Sea turtles are worldwide protected and we can still spot them within the Thousand Islands region
By ‘reef check’ we can observe the effects of global warming. Raising awareness is the key to change a negative lifestyle and to obtain a healthy ecosystem.
We already know 70% of earth is water almost certainly originated in the oceans, yet the biological diversity of marine habitats is threatened by the activities of one largely land-based species ‘US’. The activities through which humans threaten marine life including: over fishing, destruction many coral, pollution, and commercial aqua culture.
Essential to solving these problems will be more equitable and sustainable management of the oceans as well as stronger protection of ‘marine ecosystem’, by failing to implement and enforce adequate protective is vital if we are to ensure the health of our oceans for future generations.
What we do:
Coral Reef Rehabilitations and Protections Program.
- Coral : The skeletal remain secreted by small polyps.
- Coral polyps : a tiny animal that’s looks like an upside-down Jellyfish; a benthic cnidarian that can exist individually or in colony and may secrete external skeletons of calcium carbonate.
- Coral Reef : Formed when hundreds of hard coral colonies grow next to and on top of each other; a mainly calcareous reef compose substantially of coral, coralline algae, and sand; present only in waters where the minimum average monthly temperature is 18 degrees C or higher.
Coral reef so fragile ecosystem but they is house from fishes, because if just little damage happen with coral reef they need many-many time for rebuild one colony of coral reef. Coral reefs deserve protection for their intrinsic natural value. In addition, the economic, tourism, fishing and recreational resources of tropical areas around the world depend upon healthy coral reef ecosystems. Barrier coral reefs protect shorelines from erosion and storm damage.
Our Program concerns:
- Assist with the development of Protected areas.
- Rehabilitation of the Coral reef, by allowing to reef to revalidate naturally
- Coral Transplantation.
- Placement of Artificial reef (Rumpon)
- Buoys builder (Pengganti jangkar)
- Socialization and awareness activities
- Protection of sea turtle eggs from predators, to let them hatch naturally
Mangroves and Sea grass Program.
- Mangrove: A group of tropical plant species that grow in low marshy areas at latitude below about 30 degrees; they have extensive root systems and produce much organic detritus to create a unique coastal environment for marine life. Mangroves are salt-tolerant trees with submerged roots that area nursery and breeding ground for bird and most of the marine life that migrate to the reef. Mangroves trap and produce nutrients food and habitat, Stabilize the shoreline, and filter pollutants from the land base.
- Sea grasses: Are flowering marine plants that are an important part of the food web. They provide foods and habitat for turtles, many fish, filter feeding organism and foraging sea life such as sea urchin and sea cucumbers. Sea grasses are a nursery for pink shrimp, lobster, and other sea life. They filter the water of sediments, release oxygen and stabilize the bottom.
‘So the Coral Reefs depends upon Mangroves and Sea grasses’
- Mangroves planting
- Sea Grasses rehabilitation (naturally)
- Natural Fertilizer for compost
- Sea Turtle Protection
- Recycling of plastic / waste management
- Raptor rehabilitation
