The portion of costal waters that we are actively protecting since the resort installation has been officially delared as a marine protected area by the ministerial decree No 53 of the Sea and Fishery ministry, which also defines some other protected area on the Banggai region and islands. This is very good as by now our action can be integrated into a government program and be even more legitimate.

This August 2021,  the Tompotika Fundation signed a partnership agreement with the Indonesian Governement (Sea & Fishery province department) for the management of the protected area around the  Tompotika Dive Lodge.
