Finger Coral 50-60cm
Our Supplier has been involved in importing and exporting marine products for over thirty years. The one caveat has always been sustainability.
The coral imported from the Pacific is collected and certified under the strict international CITES convention. One hundred and eighty countries including Australia are signatories to the convention. Australia and New Zealand are also required under the convention to assist and educate the Pacific nations on how to manage and protect their natural resources. Total compliance for each shipment is needed or future orders will not be approved.
The collection method used of rotation of areas and zones produces limited impact. Documentation of species collected produces clarity and compliance to CITES. So they get maximum value for the resource we also include a pre processing value adding component for this natural re growing resource.
A close involvement with my collectors is in stark contrast to how the pacific islanders are normally treated. What we are doing together has them understanding the importance of controlled and conservative collection methods, this will have the resource in place for future generations.
Our Supplier is very proud of their involvement in this industry. Awareness of how amazing the shapes and textures of coral are will surely make us aware how important it is to make the big decisions needed to protect reefs world wide.
