TUI leads marine conservation in Bali

TUI leads marine conservation in Bali

Thursday, 16 May, 2024 0

Tour operator TUI is assisting two tourism reliant communities to conserve their coral reef ecosystems.

TUI has been working on Sea the Change Bali, in partnership with Livingseas Foundation, to protect reefs in Padangbai, Bali.

Padangbai is the main east coast seaport and also a popular travelers’ haven and diving hub.

During initial stage between 2021 and 2023, almost 300 square metres of coral were planted.

This reef has already grown and is now part of a thriving marine ecosystem.

Members of the local community were also trained in scuba diving and conservation to help with restoring and conserving the coral reef.

The programme will also develop a reef-planting experience for tourists to contribute..

Coral reef degradation has been caused by a combination of overfishing, pollution and improper boat mooring and anchoring practices.

The TUI Care Foundation’s ‘Marine May’ is a month of activities dedicated to ocean preservation.

Through project launches and education, it highlights the importance of sustainable practices to safeguard marine ecosystems.

The TUI Care Foundation is also involved in a project in the Dominican Republic.

It is working in partnership with the Bávaro Reef Ecological Foundation to help conserve over 560 hectares of seascapes, which will be zoned and demarcated through five TUI Care Foundation buoys.

Awareness workshops and coral gardening have helped to train local beach workers and fishermen to protect the area.

Up to 30 local organisations will be engaged in Bávaro as well as the neighbouring region Cabeza de Toro.

The programme has launched the Bávaro Snorkel Lover experience, which will engage tourists through a combination of coral gardening, awareness and snorkeling activities.
