Let’s talk Coral Catch

Coral Catch is an award winning scholarship program that empowers local women to protect and restore the coral reefs of Indonesia.

In nine weeks we give women the knowledge, tools, experience, and network to set up and monitor a coral restoration project.

Geek side note fact: Our Coral Catch Superwomen are the first completely female local coral restoration team in Indonesia.

Why is Coral Catch important?

Coral reefs support life in our oceans, and our oceans support life as we know it. Yet half of our coral reefs have already been lost and scientists estimated that more than 90% of all coral reefs are expected to die by 2050, if we don’t act now.

In a world without coral reefs….


There would be 50-80% less oxygen for us to breathe

Around a quarter of all marine life would lose their habitat (that’s over 1 million species!) 


Hundreds of millions of people would lose their main source of food and income


200 million people could lose their protection from storms, hurricanes and tsunamis


    more than 50% of cancer drug research will not be possible as they rely on coral reefs


The world would lose about $36 billion in tourism revenue every year

Our Mission

It is our mission to empower local women in ocean conservation and getting coastal communities involved in protecting and restoring the coral reefs of Indonesia.

Our goal is to empower 100 Indonesian women by 2030 to pursue careers in marine conservation by providing them with coral restoration scholarships.
