This is a small dive resort and research center located on Bangka Island, in the north tip of Sulawesi (Manado is the closest airport). We are in the center of the "Coral Triangle", the epicenter of marine biodiversity.
We share a long and beautiful beach with some fisherman families and with an half hour walk in the jungle we reach the small village of Lihunu. The coral reef in front of us and all around Bangka Island is stunning: colorful coral, fishes, clear blu water. There are some mangrove forest too, hills to hike and possibility to do birdwatching.
We started some months ago a daring project to fight against plastic pollution: this initiative is powered by a German NGO and we need help to develop this project! Our goal is to keep the environment clean and give islanders the opportunity for an income by selling waste and increasing the motivation for waste separation.
