Protecting the Coral Triangle and the Oceans that
CTC’s Center for Marine Conservation is dedicated to the protection of the Coral Triangle’s marine biodiversity and the oceans that connect us all.
Stretching across six countries, the Coral Triangle is considered the world’s epicenter of marine biodiversity. It is home to 76% of all known coral species, 37% of reef fish species, and is an important spawning area for tuna, charismatic and endangered animals such as whales, sea turtles, manta rays, sunfish, and many others.
The Coral Triangle stretches across six countries including the Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste. Its unparalleled marine and coastal resources provide profound benefits to more than 120 million people and to millions more beyond its borders.
