Zach Boakes: Coral Reef Conservation and Manta Rays

Joining me this week is the wonderful Zach Boakes, conservationist and NGO founder. Alongside local villager Ketut, Zach started the coral reef conservation project in a small village in Northern Bali after seeing the damage being done to the local environment and reef system.

I hope you enjoy our chat as we delve into some of the key issues facing our coral reefs, the power of community engagement as well as what it’s like to set up your own NGO in a country thousands of miles from home.

Catch up with Zach, Ketut and the project via their website, Facebook or Instagram and be sure to pay them a visit if you're ever in Bali - they are always looking for volunteers!

Until next time!
