IMG_5088The ongoing crisis facing our oceans is complex and at times seemingly impossible to reverse. There have been numerous very well researched scientific studies on the causes of the decline of coral reefs worldwide but each area is different and requires individual assessment. Once the causes have clearly been identified then we are more prepared to intervene with projects that pinpoint solutions for the root causes.

¬†After conducting interviews with over 500 native fisherman and completing two years of biological surveys the CTC has identified 5 areas for intervention which will fall under three project catagories: 1) establishing a network of MPA’s, 2) proving practical education about sustainable practices and the upcoming challenges of climate change, 3) pioneer new business development to create alternative employment and economic opportunities.
