THE STORY:

You can help protect the world's most beautiful and diverse habitats when you Adopt a Coral Reef today.

One of the most biologically diverse marine environments on the planet, Kimbe Bay is home to a wealth of colorful hard and soft corals, 12 different species of marine mammals and hundreds of species of fish. In fact, scientists have recorded at least 860 species of coral reef fish in Kimbe Bay and more than half of the world's coral species can be found here. The bay's wide variety of marine habitats — coral reefs, mangroves, seagrasses, deep ocean waters and seamounts —make it an ideal home for whales, dolphins, turtles and sharks.

With a strong network of partners, The Nature Conservancy is protecting Papua New Guinea’s Kimbe Bay. We are doing this in a variety of ways, such as:

- Establishing marine protected areas
- Protecting corals where reef fish gather to breed
- Helping local governments draft and implement legislation that enforces the protection of marine areas
