Ocean Gardener works with dive shops, and resorts around Indonesia to offer our educational courses, and workshops. We work with these partners to build coral nurseries and restore reefs in their area. 

Each partner project is unique, with a range of habitats being restored. We use various species of corals and different nursery and reef restoration methods depending on location and needs of the reef being restored.
