Reef Seen Conservation Week 2017.
For more than 25 years, Reef Seen has been committed to protecting and preserving Pemuteran's sea, and the marine life that lies beneath, subsequently helping to develop the local marine tourism, creating new business and employment opportunities for the Village of Pemuteran. The success of our efforts in preserving and protecting Pemuteran's marine assets is the main reason behind our initial "Reef Seen Conservation Week". Sharing our knowledge and experiences we highlight some of the work done in our continuing efforts as the pioneers of marine conservation in Pemuteran. The occasion was also a time for us to meet up with the other marine environment communities in Pemuteran. Reef Seen organised several events to have a beneficial value to all participants; such as releasing sea turtle hatchlings by groups of Pemuteran students, group discussions, and an underwater clean-up (crown of thorns starfish and drupella removal) during the six days event.
RSWC 2017 is from Pemuteran for Pemuteran, organized and driven by the Reef Seen staff, the majority of who are from Pemuteran)
