Ocean Ambassador George Cummings Adopts Biri Bud

From August 30 to September 1, Biri Initiative was honoured to welcome George Cummings, a superstar in the world of marine conservation.

George is Ocean Ambassador for the World Federation for Coral Reef Conservation founded by Vic Ferguson, and is also partnered with the Sylvia Earle Alliance / Mission Blue.

During his time in Biri, George sponsored and helped deploy an artificial reef known as a Biri Bud, the cornerstone of our reef restoration efforts.

"George was so impressed with what he saw in our marine park and coral nursery that he wants to replicate it," said a thrilled Richard Ewen, founder and president of Biri Initiative. "Now that is something big coming from him!"
