We are really grateful to our sponsors, who believed in our dreams even when the rest of the world told us that it would be impossible to set up a coral restoration team with only Indonesian women.
The support of our sponsors is vital when it comes to helping our Coral Catch Superwomen to pursue a career in marine conservation.
We believe all Indonesian women deserve the same opportunity and it is thanks to the generous support of our sponsors that we are able to carry out our work.
Nalu is a Mexican beachwear brand that embodies the essence of the ocean meeting the shore, symbolized by a Surging Wave. This intersection represents the harmonious balance and perpetual motion of nature’s force.

Beyond this, their creations are infused with genuine passion and love. Their dedication extends not only to their designs but also to our planet and the style they curate.
They are committed to ensuring women always feel both comfortable and alluring. At the heart of Nalu’s philosophy lies the belief that the best piece of clothing is one that offers multiple styling options, encouraging a conscious approach to fashion—less shopping, more creativity.
Their new collection Aurelia embodies the essence of beauty, life, and the unparalleled energy of womanhood. It draws inspiration from the tiniest and most inquisitive creatures of the ocean, as well as the vibrant, captivating destinations scattered across our world.
The name “Aurelia” is an homage to the Aurelia Jellyfish, also known as the Moon Jellyfish. They selected these graceful and mesmerizing creatures, perceiving them as symbolic representations of the enigmatic beauty inherent in female energy.
For every item sold within the collection, Nalu is planting a baby coral in our restoration site ! Each customer will receive a certificate pinpointing the location of the adopted baby coral, establishing a tangible connection to the positive impact of their purchase.

In 2019 we went to Singapore to attend the ceremony for the International Seakeepers Society Asian Achievement Award, where an unbelievable thing happened – WE WON!!!
We were overwhelmed to have gained such recognition from this amazing organization. We were even more surprised when The International SeaKeepers Society offered us a partnership for our coral restoration project. With their help, we placed the first 60 hex dome structures and Coral Catch was born.
Besides partly funding our coral restoration project, The International SeaKeepers Society is assisting us with visits from marine biologists from Malaysia and Singapore, with whom we exchange information on how to optimize coral growth.
Furthermore, they share our (educational) content as part of their International SeaKeepers Society Asia Educational Outreach Programme.
It is our pleasure to take the next steps forward in critical marine research with the International Seakeepers Society by our side.
In 2022 Coral Catch was one of the first organizations of PADI’s Community Grant Program Funding.
PADI AWARE Community Grants are awarded to ocean protection initiatives and projects in direct support of the United Nations Decade of Science for Sustainable Development. These are specified in five distinct categories: coral restoration, developing marine protected areas, eliminating marine debris, reducing the effects of climate change, and protecting species threatened with extinction like sharks and turtles.
With the help of PADI we were able to offer four more Indonesian women a coral restoration scholarship in 2023. Would you like to learn more about our coral scholarship program and how you can get involved? Click here.
