After selecting our women fellows, we were beyond excited to learn together about Mr and Mrs Coral! We discussed their importance in protecting our seas – and their vulnerability to climate change. The women were excited, and asked us a lot of questions about how climate change happens. At first it was challenging to teach them about coral and climate change, due to their different ages and backgrounds. Some of them are high schoolers, while others are vocational school students whose schools exclusively provide education related to their selected vocation, such as technology, hospitality, and culinary majors. Other fellows are much older working women. As such, the level of awareness on natural ecosystems also varies between each fellow. Although it took a bit of time to carefully educate the women, they all understood the material very well in the end. We were elated to be a part of their growth as coral protectors of Bali!
