The SEA People (locally named ‘Orang Laut Papua’), is a field based NGO working at grassroots level to contribute to the protection of one of the last locations on earth where coral reef systems still thrive.

By combining science and technology with traditional skills and management techniques, The SEA People focuses largely on capacity building to support community based ecosystems management. Working with the local communities who depend on healthy coral reefs for both food and livelihoods, along with local and international stakeholders, The SEA people take a holistic approach to marine conservation.

The SEA People & Orang Laut Papua is the culmination of the passion, dedication and commitment of a small team, who know that the biggest threat to nature is thinking that someone else will do what needs to be done.
