About Reef Check Indonesia

Reef Check Indonesia (RCFI) is a global non-governmental organisation dedicated to empowering people to improve coastal community welfare through integrated coastal and marine ecosystem management based around three pillars.

Reef Check itself spawned from a conservation initiative in 1997, where volunteers were actively involved in monitoring Indonesia’s coral reefs.

RCFI was founded in 2005 and is part of Reef Check International, the largest coral reef conservation network globally, spanning over 90 countries. These three pillars are:

1) Collaborative Management,
2) Education-Awareness, and
3) Science-Technology

which are implemented into the program of accountable management, empowering community, and applicable science.
