About the
Coral Triangle



Fact: Regardless of where you live, it is quite likely that an invisible bond ties you to 6 million km2 of seas in the Asia-Pacific region that are just bursting with marine life—this is the Coral Triangle, the nursery of the seas.

It is in these waters that a large share of the world’s tuna supply is caught and shipped, in cans or in iceboxes—and from there finds its way to your sandwich, salad or sushi.

This is also where your fish at the restaurant may have come from, as the Coral Triangle is home to thousands of the world’s reef fish species. 

But the Coral Triangle is much more than that.

In addition to its fish wildlife, this is also the region with the single highest concentration of coral reef species in the world.

It is where 6 of the world’s 7 species of marine turtles nest, forage and migrate—and a place where whales, dolphins, dugongs, and the world’s largest fish, the whaleshark, continue to thrive and delight tourists from all over the world. More than 120 million people depend heavily on the region’s marine resources for food and income.

It is a place the world simply cannot do without.

And this is why we need your help to save it by protecting it like it was your own.
