The Coral Triangle is considered by scientists to be the global epicenter of marine diversity and a major center of coral evolution. A full 76 percent of known coral species are found here and 37 percent of reef fish species. Extensive mangrove forests provide nurseries for the rich seas that have sustained our sea faring island people for millennia. The reefs serve as spawning and breeding grounds for whales and dolphins, sea turtles, and huge fisheries. The diverse reefs are also the seeding stock for the future of our planet’s coral reefs helping ensure adaptation as our natural communities respond to climate change and other global trends.
The Coral Triangle, the global centre of marine biodiversity, is an area of 6 million square kilometers that includes parts of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands.
The Dewi Nusantara concentrates on the Indonesian part of the vast area!
