Coral Reef Restoration Project Update. (October 2018)

 

Global Village Foundation Bali (sponsored by AUSAID’s Direct Aid Program Bali) is working to restore the Coral reef & Coral Gardens at Dsn Kalanganjar, a small coastal Village in North Bali.

The primary goals of this project are to create a sustainable, environmentally positive tourism industry at village level, that will benefit both the village residents, and the environment.

Kalanganyar is in a poorer area of North Bali and currently enjoys no obvious benefits from Bali’s tourism industry.
500 Reef pots have been placed in the first 7 months of 2018.
A further 100 reef pots, plus a range of Balinese stone statues are currently being installed.
There is still much work to do, it will take several years before the reef is restored to it’s former glory, however the project is showing incredible progress with fish numbers, sizes,and healthy corals already increasing rapidly in the restored areas
