Ambassadors

Meet the Coral Catch Sisterhood.

Behind Every Successful Woman Is A Tribe Of Other Successful Women Who Have Her Back.

A crucial aspect contributing to the success of Coral Catch involves the professional network available to its alumnae. Research from Harvard shows that women with well-connected peer networks are more likely to secure executive positions with greater authority and higher pay. We’ve also seen firsthand that when women support each other, incredible things happen. By lifting each other up and embracing collaboration, we can truly change the world (and have a lot more fun along the way!).

We take great pride in the support system surrounding our Coral Catch Superwomen, which includes a network of successful women from all around the world. Our sisterhood consists of 34 influential women, each making significant contributions to conservation, marine science, entrepreneurship, and emotional well-being. They generously offer masterclasses, spend time with the candidates during their training, and showcase our impactful work to the word. Their mentorship ensures our Superwomen are well-equipped for their journey and encourages them to pay it forward to future generations.

Our partnerships with journalists and influencers increase visibility, fueling our advocacy efforts, and ensuring continued program success.

“I believe we are always just one opportunity away from a different life, our goals, our purpose. Coral Catch provides crucial opportunities to its Coral Catch Superwomen and I am incredibly fascinated by how this program shapes and uplifts its participants.

Sylvie De Burie
“The past couple of years, there’s been a lot of heated debate on both gender equality and ocean conservation. How absolutely wonderful it was to discover a project like Coral Catch tackling both topics simultaneously. In Iceland, the world’s leading country when it comes to closing the gender equality gap, they use the word sprakkar for extraordinary, outstanding, strong women. Let’s introduce the word in Bahasa Indonesia and start on Gili Air. I feel honored to contribute to the Coral Catch double mission and I can’t wait to meet all of you sprakkar in real life!”
