27 Oct (Tue): WWF's Coral Triangle Photo Expedition Slide Show

Turtles! Mantas! Molas! Join Jürgen and Stella for a photographic kaleidoscope depicting their 18-month WWF Coral Triangle photojournalistic expedition as they investigate the connectivity between the wildlife, people and the marine environment of the Coral Triangle.
The event is free but registration is required. Register by 20 Oct.

In one vast, turquoise-blue corner of this Earth, the forces of nature have crafted a truly amazing underwater tapestry of corals. One that is unrivalled in its richness, importance, and sheer beauty. This is the Coral Triangle - nursery of the seas.

The Coral Triangle is the world’s centre of marine life – a vast, majestic and colourful coral nursery covering 6 million km2 of ocean – a home sheltering and sustaining thousands of whales, dolphins, tuna, reef fish, rays, sharks and turtles. Its underwater riches are equally matched by the diversity of its people, cultures and traditions – all of whom rely on the sea in one way or another for their survival. Livelihoods, wildlife and survival are interdependent across the region and beyond.

All this beauty and richness will be captured by Jürgen and Stella Freund, one of the top photographic teams in the world. Along the way, they will illustrate WWF’s field work through stories and pictures, and investigate the ‘connectivity’ between the people and wildlife of the Coral Triangle.
