Papua New Guinea - WWF: together possible
Photos by WWF Photographer Jürgen Freund Husband and wife photographic team Jürgen and Stella Freund have travelled extensively with WWF in the Coral Triangle – an area covering 6 million square kilometres of sea and land, including Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands. Within this nursery of the seas live 76 per cent of the world’s coral species, six out of seven of the world’s marine turtle species and at least 2,228 types of reef fish. The ocean also directly sustains more than 120 million people in the region. Stella Freund’s reflections and recollections of their experiences — captured in the Coral Triangle blog — offer insight into the cultures of the region, and the challenges and opportunities for both people and nature.
