CTC is a local non-profit organization based in Bali with a regional scope and global impact. It transforms marine resource management and safeguards the future of the Coral Triangle by working closely with local communities, the private sector, governments, and other partners to shape lasting solutions to protect coral reef ecosystems. CTC provides education, training, and makes sure that marine protected areas within the world’s epicenter of marine biodiversity are managed effectively. CTC supports on-the-ground conservation programs through its learning sites in the Nusa Penida Marine Protected Area in Bali, the Banda Islands Marine Protected Areas network in the Moluccas, and Atauro Islands in Timor-Leste. CTC catalyzes collective action by leading networks of women leaders, local government executives, private sector champions, who engage and implement marine resource conservation in Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste. CTC aims to leverage its impact by developing a Center for Marine Conservation in Bali, a social enterprise that enables it to offer innovative learning experiences, such as the Escape Room SOS from the Deep and the Community Coral Art Education project, to the wider public. The Center will serve as a hub for conservation training programs and outreach activities - influencing approximately 1.5 million people by 2020 to protect and care for the ocean - as well as generate funding for CTC’s conservation projects in Indonesia and the Coral Triangle. CTC has completed the Center’s first phase, which includes the training facilities. It aims to finish the second phase in 2018, which will include interactive exhibits, and the 3rd phase in the following year, which will include a training and digital game laboratory.
