Conservation of Natural Environment
Coral Reef Transplant Project (Indonesia)
PT. Epson Batam (PEB) has been helping to back a coral transplant project on Abang Island since 2015 to preserve biodiversity. The project, which involves people from Indonesia's fishing and tourist industries as well as government and NGOs, is growing coral reefs (coral gardens) by transplanting about 500 coral fragments every year over a gradually larger area. Residents of Abang Island are hopeful that the transplanted coral can improve the environment for fish and increase their numbers.
Activities were limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but PEB employees themselves dove under the sea to check coral growth.
