Energy Globe Award Indonesia 2015

July 13, 2015

Gili Ecotrust receives award for "Biorock" coral reefs

This years’ Energy Globe Award for Indonesia was awarded to Mrs. Delphine Robbe from the Gili Ecotrust. The Organization is ensuring the sustainable conservation and reconstruction of coral reefs, saving the Gili-Islands (NTB) from erosion.

Artificial reefs made of steel - so called “Biorocks” - are anchored into the sand at shallow areas and are applied with a very low voltage current to the wire frame under water. This helps corals to grow and rebuild faster.

The award was handed over to Mrs. Robbe by the Austrian Ambassador on 10 July. Representatives from the public sector, art, embassies, NGO’s and from the private sector participated in the ceremony and were impressed by the initiative of Gili Ecotrust.
