SCHOLAR REEF 2021

 

Youth is the future of sustainable coral conservation

Indonesia has 2,5 million hectares of coral reefs but more than 30% are destroyed. Even though hundreds of billions of rupiah of the budget is spent for restoration and conservation, the impact of coral restoration is mostly unknown or far from sustainable.

Why Scholar Reef?

Scholar Reef is a program designed for future coral protectors using science based approach through class, hands on experience and creating powerful networks so they are able to protect their marine ecosystem and help their community become stronger to support sustainable coral reef conservation.

Scholar Reef is also an effort to gather scientific information of coral reef  restoration impacts to push the government to evaluate and collaborate in better planning of sustainable reef restoration programs.

 

Scholar Reef  Series 2021

Scholar reef series 2021 is an initiation by Biorock Indonesia for youth to focus on developing knowledge, skills, awareness, commitment, experience, and portfolio as a future coral protector. Youth plays a crucial role in contributing to sustainable environmental conservation. We can escalate the preservation to build a better coral reef ecosystem and strong community by approaching youth. In particular, youth enthusiastic about conservation are interested in working on NGOs to support non-governmental organizations to achieve sustainable development goals.

SCHOLAR REEF 2021 will focusing on 3 location : Jakarta, Bali, and West Nusa Tenggara (NTB).
