Coral Triangle Day

Coral Triangle Day Observed

On the day, employees of CEPA with stakeholders and partners, led by Total Waste Management, removed plastic waste and other non-degradable garbage around the mangrove patches on the island.  

It was also a day to witness the innovative way of reviving coral reef by a local NGO, Hiri Coral.

The Coral Triangle Day is a day dedicated to celebrate the six countries of Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Indonesia, The Philippines, Timor Leste and Solomon Islands who have the largest remaining coral reefs in the world.
