Our goal is to bring nature lovers, aquarists, scientists, photographers, fishermen, professional keepers or conservationists together to stop the destruction of unique freshwater biotopes of Sulawesi and prevent the extinction of even the smallest and overlooked species.
There are several ways you can help and make a difference.
Support our On-Site activities
Donate to support our awareness campaigns in Indonesia to prevent further release of exotic species into local waters. Invasive fish and crayfish are driving many vulnerable native species to extinction. Help local people appreciate the diversity of native endemic fauna and to protect it.
Donate to support our monitoring and research activities in Sulawesi. The more funds we raise, the more work can be done to help where it is needed most. We can prevent extinction.
Join our conservation Breeding Programme
Keep endangered species in your home aquarium with the aim of contributing to a safe ex situ (captive) population. Find out about the status of the natural population of the species you keep and work with other breeders to ensure our insurance populations are thriving. Keeping endangered species is not just a hobby, it is nature conservation.
