Our Sponsors

Meet our sponsors, the people & organisations helping us to keep going and growing.

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

Steve Jobs

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.

Coral Catch Sponsors

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!!

The annual Seakeepers Award is given to individuals or organizations who show extraordinary commitment to the cause of marine conservation in Asia. This year the award was given to Rose Huizenga and her research team in recognition of their exemplary work and direct role in conservation management. We commend the vision and team’s passion to create a legacy of conservation around the Gili Islands.

We were overwhelmed to have gained such recognition by this amazing organization. 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 party 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.

Support Coral Catch Superwomen

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.

We are thrilled to launch our new fund to advance ocean conservation, especially since there are many PADI dive centers and community-based NGOs driving meaningful local action for global ocean conservation, often with little or no funding. To help ensure these efforts succeed, PADI AWARE is committing 24% of our donations this year to the Community Grant Program, with a goal of reaching $1million in funding by 2024.

With the help of PADI we were able to offer five more Indonesian women a coral restoration scholarship in 2022. Would you like to learn more about our coral scholarship program and how you can get involved? Click here.
