Coral Triangle Centre in Bali is a locally-based non-profit organization with a regional outreach and global impact. CTC is dedicated to protecting marine and coastal ecosystems for future generations. Based in Sanur, Bali, CTC provides education and training to ensure that marine protected areas within the world's epicentre of marine biodiversity are managed effectively. In addition to their conservation programmes, CTC uses fun and interactive ways to teach children and adults about best practices when it comes to caring for our oceans. Through our strategic partnership, we will be developing exciting new conservation programmes (including for school camps) and continuing to introduce children and adults to the world of scuba diving.

Since the film ‘Finding Nemo’ came onto the screens in 2003, anemone fish have been drastically overharvested. To help preserve our colourful friends, OrcaNation has partnered with Flinders University and Saving Nemo to create the world's first IC-Anemone Dive & Snorkel Trails at Rawa Island Resort, Malaysia. Guests can swim with Nemo while collecting important scientific data. SG $10.00 from every Nemo Trail goes directly towards building a permanent breeding station at Rawa Island.

Trashpackers is a global movement of travellers who are cleaning up and minimizing their single-use plastic. Trashpacking is so much more than simply cleaning up, it is reducing our environmental footprint, spreading consciousness and inspiring other people by showing that we can make a difference as individuals. It's promoting intercultural exchange and a non-judging mindset. Our year challenge in 2019 is to collect 100,000 bin bags, attract 10,000 Trashpackers and educate over 15,000 kids!
