The epicenter of marine biodiversity
The Coral Triangle, with only 1.6% of the planet’s oceans, contains over 600 species of reefs, 76% of all known coral species in the world, more than 2,000 species of fish, including the whale shark, and 6 of the world’s 7 species of marine turtles. It spans 6 million square kilometers, expanding across 6 countries from the Philippines to Timor-Leste.
At its heart, you will find more than 17,000 islands of the Indonesian archipelago. Today, Indonesia as a destination is not as famous as its neighbors in South East Asia such as Singapore and Thailand. However, many are familiar with the exotic beauty of the islands of Sumatera, Borneo, Java, Bali, Papua and more recently Komodo and Sumba Island.
All of these spectacular islands are within Indonesia’s boarder.

The resulting acidification of the seawater causes coral bleaching which is devastating much of the earth’s reefs.
Fortunately, the reefs in and around The Coral Triangle have not yet to be affected by these threats.
