Working with CCEF, either as a volunteer or as foundation staff, is often a rewarding experience filled with travel, adventure and learning. The bloggers whose articles you see on this page, would like to share their personal views on what is it like to be working for the advancement of sustainable coasts and involved communities, often in far-flung islands where the daily rhythm of the lives of its inhabitants are closely linked to the rise and fall of the tides.
Mangroves are trees or shurbs that are salt-tolerant, and can grow in harsh coastal conditions such as in saline and brackish water. Learn more about mangroves and their uses.
Largely taken for granted, seagrasses are also one of the most productive ecosystems globally. Learn more about seagrasses and their importance to marine ecosystems.
Coral reefs are important habitats to thousands of fish species and other marine life. Recent impacts of climate change and destructive fishing are threatening our coral reefs. Learn more about coral reefs here.

Coastal Conservation and Education Foundation (CCEF) believes that everyone can protect our environment, especially the youth. These young people with passion and knowledge can make a change. This video was created by our very own SEAklab Coastal Camp delegates, documenting their activities and what they’ve learned. CCEF invited Coastal Leaders to be oriented and trained to become stewards of life and the environment.
