About the Coral Triangle
The Coral Triangle is a 6 million km2
expanse of land and sea encompassing the waters of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste.
This is the world’s epicenter of marine diversity, home to extraordinary wildlife and large human communities, and a critical economic resource.
In April 2009, award-winning photographer Jürgen Freund and Stella-Chiu Freund set out on an 18-month expedition across the Coral Triangle, visiting bustling centers of marine product trade as well as some of the most remote and breathtaking habitats on earth.
A photographic log of their journey is available on this WWF blog
