IT'S IN YOUR HANDS. Saving Coral Reefs Starts with YOU.
Raja Ampat is the most marine biodiverse place on Earth. But its reefs are at risk. You can help protect them.
The world’s last marine wilderness is under threat. In Raja Ampat, Indonesia, unsustainable development and climate change threaten the most marine biodiverse location on Earth, along with the food security, heritage and livelihoods of many.
The SEA People (locally named ‘Orang Laut Papua’), is a field based Foundation working to contribute to the protection of one of the last locations on Earth where coral reef systems still thrive.
Taking a holistic approach to marine conservation, we work with local communities, who depend on healthy coral reefs for both food and livelihoods, and aim to provide mutually beneficial solutions to ecosystems based management. By combining science and technology with traditional skills and management techniques, we focus largely on capacity building; strengthening the ability of local community members to obtain the skills, knowledge and understanding required for improved management, protection and enhancement of local marine resources.

As a non-profit, we operate exclusively on donations, and where available, grants. It is only through the contribution of generous supporters around the world that we are able to achieve our mission to RESTORE, PROTECTandCONSERVEthe world's most biodiverse reefs, alongside the local communities.
