A new event called Coral Triangle Day will debut on June 9. It’s a regional celebration that will be held simultaneously at different locations around the Coral Triangle region, including Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and other countries in the Pacific. The event aims to highlight the ecological importance of the Coral Triangle region and the need for ocean conservation in general. Anyone with photos or videos that help convey this message is welcome to post them on June 9 at www.thecoraltriangle.com/day.
Various organizations have pledged to do something to help on this day, such as beach clean-ups, sustainable seafood dinners, exhibitions, bazaars, and beach parties aimed to heighten awareness. Anyone wishing to participate or learn more should visit www.thecoraltriangle.com/day.
