Coral Triangle Center
CTC promotes the conservation of marine biodiversity and the sustainable management of marine and coastal resources across the Coral Triangle.
Coral Triangle Center (CTC) is a foundation based in Indonesia with regional scope and global impact. Established in 2010, CTC works closely with local communities, private sector, governments, and partners to strengthen marine resource management in the Coral Triangle to protect coral reef ecosystems, ensure sustainable livelihoods and food security.
We support on-the-ground conservation in Bali, Maluku, as well as in Timor-Leste. We lead learning networks of women leaders, local government executives and marine protected area practitioners in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste.
We are developing our Center for Marine Conservation in Bali as an integrated learning space for training programs, outreach activities, interactive exhibits, and artistic and cultural performances to influence millions of people to care for our oceans and those who depend on it.
We at CTC continue to work towards our aim to inspire people to care for the oceans. Since our establishment in 2010 until 2023, we have protected more than 435,000 hectares of critical marine habitat. We have trained more than 7,600 people to support marine protected areas and sustainable fisheries management throughout the Coral Triangle region. More than 20,000 people have visited our Center for Marine Conservation, many of whom have been inspired to take direct action to protect our oceans. In the last three years, we reach an average of 200,000 people annually to care for our seas via our social media channels. We started our monthly children’s education program and engaged more than 600 school children in Indonesia to become future stewards of our planet.
With your support, together we will be able to continue the momentum and inspire more people to care and protect the ocean that connects us all.
