United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
This page details the UN Sustainable Development Goals being addressed by the SeaTrees project on Nusa Penida in Bali, Indonesia.
Sustainable Development on Nusa Penida
Tourism is one of the main economic pillars in Bali, but there is potential for negative impacts on the local environment. The coral reefs of Nusa Penida have been damaged by tourist pontoon boat anchors, which drag along the coral bed under high currents. This flattens and destroys live coral reefs.
Working with Balinese nonprofit Ocean Gardener, this project employs a team of local fisher-people and divers to restore the degraded coral reefs of Nusa Penida and educate the local community on best practices to protect the reefs moving forward.
