Yayasan Kerang Lestari Teluk Pemuteran (Pemuteran Bay Coral Protection Foundation)

Yayasan Kerang Lestari Teluk Pemuteran (Pemuteran Bay Coral Protection Foundation) was started in response to the collapse of the local fishing industry near the Pemuteran community in Bali, due in large measure to coral reef loss from sedimentation, rising water temperatures, and unsustainable fishing methods such as reef bombing. The organization oversees more than 70 artificial ‘biorock’ coral reefs, which have restored fish stocks and marine biodiversity. The chain effect of connecting the artificial reefs has helped to rejuvenate local subsistence fishing livelihoods.

Hundreds of community members have been trained in artificial reef building. The community has created a de facto locally managed marine protected area, with community enforcement of regulations that prohibit destructive fishing practices. An ecotourism enterprise draws scuba divers from around the world and provides an additional source of income. Ecotourism revenues have been reinvested into local schools, environmental education, and shoreline restoration projects to control erosion. The community model for reef restoration and marine management has been replicated in other coastal communities across Indonesia.
