This island in the Lombok Strait, between Bali and Lombok has some of the fastest moving currents in the world. This attracts megafauna like manta rays and mola mola. These currents can also damager the coral reef.
who we are
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.
