The local team behind the Danjugan Island Nature Tourism Program are Coral Guardians, protecting the reef with education and experience, as they cook in the kitchen, maintain the trails and camps, or clean the beaches. Every task for the island’s operations, no matter how small, contributes to the conservation of coral reefs. Some staff members weren’t able to join this group photo because they were in the water for a group snorkeling activity. Our most heartfelt gratitude to Anders Paulsson, Swedish national artist who composed the song “Danjugan Sanctuary”, for the shirts and the inspiration. 10 November 2017.
