How to start a career in marine conservation
Avicenna Wijyanto
Graduated March 25, 2022
“Coral Catch has been great fun from the moment I got accepted to the moment I graduated. The program and the people running it are so inspiring. To see that the corals that we planted, slowly started growing was a truly magical moment. I’m happy to be part of the Coral Catch Superwomen, and I hope this program can continue to inspire more women in Indonesia and other parts of the world to protect the ocean!”

“Joining the Coral Catch Superwomen has been an incredible opportunity that changed my life completely. I’m proud of all the structures that we made and deployed in the marine park around the Gili Islands. One colony of hex domes is even named after me! I can’t wait to return to Gili Air one day to see how my baby corals are doing. Thank you so much for helping me to become the best version of myself.”

“This program was an amazing experience for me. I had the opportunity to meet other incredible superwomen and work together with marine biologists, professors, instructors, and entrepreneurs from around the world. They instantly became my island family and even after the scholarship, we keep supporting each other.

This scholarship helped me to improve my dive skills, expand my knowledge in coral restoration, boosted my confidence, and helped me to make my dream to work in conservation reality. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity, it was truly the best experience of my life!”
