The Coral Triangle covers areas within six countries – Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste. It is shaped like a triangle because scientists have identified that these are the boundaries that delineate the epicenter of marine biodiversity on Planet Earth!
At CTC, we train the people who are in the frontlines of this struggle, building networks, delivering courses, and providing on-ground support for the current and future guardians of the coral seas. The battle for the survival of the Coral Triangle cannot be won without well-trained people who are sensitive to the needs of the ocean and able to do what it takes to safeguard it.
Since its foundation in 2011, the CTC has supplied crucial knowledge and skills to thousands of people engaged in the struggle for a healthy and thriving Coral Triangle: people working on the ground in fisheries and in protected areas, scientists, NGO workers, government officials, and volunteers.
