Baby Turtle on a black Sand in Tompotika

Tompotika Foundation

The Tompotika Foundation, legally known as Yayasan Tompotika Biodiversity Lestari,  is an Indonesian NGO dedicated to the marine conservation of the Pulau Dua area, located in the Peninsula of Balantak,  Luwuk, East coast of Central Sulawesi, Indonesia.

It has been established by the Tompotika Dive Lodge resort owners, who together with the local communities, protect the area since the resort construction in 2014.  Great outcomes have been achieved already but we are still looking for more. Recently, in 2019, the area has  been officially declared and registered as Marine Protected Area by the Sea and Fishery Ministry regulation number 53.
