A Personal Note from Paul Falworth
Protect Gili Air Atoll Founder

On my fourth visit to Indonesia in June 2008, I fell in love with the Gili Isles. I found the idyllic tropical islands peaceful and uncrowded with welcoming islanders and exotic cuisine.

After traveling to 72 countries over the last 26 years I've seen most of the beautiful beaches from the Bazaruto archipelago of Mozambique, the wide open beaches of Madagascar, the small islands of Papua New Guinea, the shores of Zanzibar, the magical beaches of Sri Lanka, many Caribbean islands, and the stunning Galapagos.

None have touched me more than the Gili isles. My only thoughts now are how to preserve their beauty. If I had the money, I try to halt the beach erosion and assist with eco-construction and eco-tourism on the island.

So I'm turning to those that do and have a similar love to protect and preserve a magical paradise. Corporate sponsors are most welcome and may enjoy watching progress via web cameras (Gili Air has broadband Internet with wifi sites). Protecting and rebuilding the atoll certainly won't be easy or inexpensive.

To make this all happen, I'm seeking corporate and private donors. If you can help or know of someone, please drop me a line.

Blue skies,
