It was that time once again, at the beginning of February we were invited to present ourselves at the largest Diving exhibition in the Netherlands: Duikvaker.
With a trusty team of enthusiastic volunteers, we managed to educate countless visitors about the CoralGardening vision, and the three pillars thereof; Educate, Protect, and Restore. There was once gain a well attended workshop about CoralGardening, where in addition to children, many parents were creating artificial reefs out of clay! We received multiple entries for a new slogan in addition to ideas for a new t-shirt, and, most importantly, we welcomed more than 60 new members into our CoralCommunity!
The project on Bangka Island attracted a great deal of interest (more about this in the coming newsletter), both from possible volunteers and from divers who would like to take a course on coral reefs (particularly regarding restoration). And as if that was not enough, Vera gave a well attended presentation highlighting the work of CoralGardening during both days!
As a result of the many enthusiastic meetings, a goodly number of people have decided to support CoralGardening on a monthly basis. You can also contribute: be our Buddy and donate a monthly amount for a healthy ocean, for all of us, and especially for future generations!
It was an exceptionally successful installment in the history of CoralGardening, Thanks to all who made it possible, and
See you next year!!
