Founded by three ocean lovers, who found each other on the beautiful island of Gili Air, the Gili Shark Conservation is a project filled with passion and engagement for the ocean and it’s marine life.
Our mission is to promote conversation efforts through education and research. Collecting abundance data within the zones of the Gili Matra Marine Recreational reserve to assess the health of the environment and act to enhance marine protection and health where necessary.
To achieve our goal we conduct research using multiple research methods including; underwater roving video surveillance, roving survey dives, photographic identification, coral health index surveys and land and marine based time lapse projects.
Besides spending a lot of time in the magical underwater world, we also love to be in the field and give back to the wonderful community of Gili Air by running a Plastic Free Paradise campaign to create awareness and reduce the use of single-use-plastic.
