The Bunaken area of Indonesia is a premier dive destination, but dynamite fishing has destroyed parts of the reef. Alung Banoa villagers and local dive operators from the North Sulawesi Watersports Association volunteered to assemble and install 300 EcoReef modules. The modules should significantly help to regenerate marine life in the damaged areas.
The family of Stephen Erdmann, who died tragically while traveling in Egypt in 2003, supported this project in Stephen’s memory. Stephen was the younger brother of Mark Erdmann, whose wife, Arnaz Mehta, was Seacology’s Southeast Asia field representative for many years.
