What is this all about?
Beach clean-ups, sustainable seafood dinners and exhibitions, bazaars, and beach parties—all these events carry the message of ocean conservation under the overall banner of "shared waters, shared solutions".
The Coral Triangle Day is an annual, open-sourced event that brings together individuals, organizations, and establishments on one special day of the year to shed light on ocean conservation and the numerous ways to protect and conserve the Coral Triangle.
For those living outside the Coral Triangle, online video streaming of all the activities happening in the region on that day are available on thecoraltriangle.com website
The Coral TriangleThe Coral Triangle, the world's epicentre of marine diversity, is one of the 3 mega ecological complexes on our planet, together with the Congo Basin and the Amazon Rainforest.
It is a vast ocean expanse that geographically spreads across 6 countries in Southeast Asia and the Pacific: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Timor Leste (the "CT6" countries).
This presentation was created by 11-year old Madeleine Becker, a fifth grader at the German European School in Singapore, who supports the Coral Triangle Day.
