THE REEF PROJECT I - What is it? What is it all about?

THE REEF PROJECT is a unique facility concerned primarily with coral reef education, conservation, rehabilitation, and restoration. To accomplish these features, there are two major missions of the Sabah, Malaysia / Pulau Gaya facility. Designated as "The Reef Project I", it is hoped that similar facilities will be developed throughout South East Asia. This is an effort to bring the communities of the region to a more knowledgeable level of understanding about their unique coral reef ecosystems and how they can effectively and efficiently utilize them in a sustainable manner for the benefit of the entire world.

Mission One

Means to accomplish this Mission are:

- "Living" Coral Reef Aquarium Exhibits & Themes

- Public & Community Seminars & Functions

- Brochures / Handouts

- Internet Communications & Coral Reef Information Database Evolution

- Quarterly REEF REPORT Newsletter

Mission Two

Coral Reef ecosystem research & development for determining restoration & rehabilitation methodology - rebuilding the coral reefs by applying various principles associated with other biological and engineering disciplines. Undergraduate practical and post graduate degree programs for university students are also supported in this mission.
