The Coral Triangle

The epicenter of marine biodiversity


The Coral Triangle spans 6 million square kilometers,
expanding across 6 countries from the Philippines to Timor-Leste.
At its heart you will find the more than 18,000 islands of Indonesia.

With only 1.6% of the planet’s oceans,
it contains over 76% of all known coral species in the world.
More than 3,000 species of fish, including the largest – the whale shark and coelacanth,
and 6 of the world’s 7 species of marine turtles,
all inhabit the Coral Triangle.

It is truly underwater wonderland.
