Praise for Pemuteran coral protection

The Pemuteran village community in remote Buleleng regency in North Bali are now enjoying robust success, as the world has recognized their extraordinary effort to restore damaged coral reefs and to preserve underwater habitats in Pemuteran Bay and the surrounding areas.

Starting very small from a community-based coral and marine protection effort to help local fishermen regain their livelihoods, the Pemuteran Coral Protection Foundation is currently one of the most-talked about projects on the international environmental stage, given a prestigious environmental award — the United Nations Development Program Equator Prize in 2012. In addition to the Equator Prize, the Pemuteran Coral Restoration Project has also won several national and international awards including the SKAL Award for the best underwater eco-tourism project in the world.
