Along with the celebration of World Oceans Day on 08th of June 2021—right in the same month—FLASH also commemorated the day by cleaning the beach. We, like many others, believed that oceans can cure all bad moods.

Therefore, we chose to visit the Watu Prapat beach in the north and it took us by surprise that as soon as we arrived at the place, our members and volunteers found innumerable plastics, a lot of sanitary pads, mountain of diapers, shards of glass, and so on so forth which scattered along the bank.

During the whole month of June, you can add your wish for the oceans to our coral garden.

This is our way to raise awareness about coral reefs. These ecosystems are the most diverse ones in the ocean and essential to guarantee protection and livelihood support to coastal communities of Indonesia.

If want to join us in our reef rehabilitation program, there’s no better time than the present!

A couple of months ago, a small group of our team met in Padangbai, Bali, with @carbonecotrip@livingseas.asia & Baruna Scientific Diving Clubs to replant 1872 baby corals onto a seagate!

Besides that, our team also educated our community of volunteers and participating divers on the climate crisis.

Our Marine mangrove and seaweed are planted in Harapan Island, Kepulauan Seribu and Jakarta
Seagrass and Coral are planted in Pramuka Island, Kepulauan Seribu, Jakarta

Thanks everyone who joined us! We will have more coral restoration trips open to the public throughout the year, where you can dive and help us restore coral reefs. Just keep an eye at @carbonecotrip page!
