We All Have The Power to Protect and Sustain Our Blue Ocean

About Us

GAIA Conservation is a community that focuses on supporting and contributing significantly to the conservation of marine mega fauna, namely sharks, rays and turtles, both scientifically and socially. GAIA Conservation was founded in 2017 and is based in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia. GAIA Conservation works to provide understanding and raise awareness of the general public, especially youth, about the sustainability of marine mega fauna in Indonesia.

Currently, GAIA Conservation members consist of undergraduate students from the Department of Marine Science and Oceanography from Diponegoro University. Going forward, GAIA Conservation hopes to attract young people from various backgrounds to become members and connect with various marine environmental communities from various regions and/or countries. We will use this collective strength to motivate and inspire us to create a harmonious and sustainable marine environment.
