Nyoman Sugiarta from Bondalem in Indonesia! Nyoman, a fisherman, has been instrumental in ensuring his community’s local reefs are protected. Through education, improved management, and the development of alternative income opportunities for fishermen, he and his team have built a network of support for meaningful reef conservation in Bondalem. We congratulate Nyoman on winning the 2014 CORAL Conservation Prize, and look forward to celebrating him at our 20th Anniversary Gala on September 20th!
CORAL’s Board and International Council created—and are funding—the CORAL Conservation Prize to recognize and advance conservation leaders around the world who are advocating for coral reefs and the communities who depend on them. These leaders, like Nyoman, are developing the solutions needed for the future of reefs, and their stories and successes need to be shared locally, regionally, and globally to inspire and inform successful conservation efforts.
Join us at our 20th Anniversary Gala, and celebrate Nyoman and his efforts. Purchase your tickets now.
