Protect Gili Air Atoll

Is Paradise Worth Saving?
Arcing away from the northwestern shore of Lombok, Indonesia lie three idyllic atolls in sparkling aquamarine waters over powdery white sand. A distant Balinese volcano looms above orange-glowing sunsets. No cars or motorcycles allowed - just birds and butterflies.

Dynamited Coral & Eroded Beachfronts.
Gili AIr has been gnawed at its edges. Since 2008 ten meters of shore have been eroded partially by failed erosion construction.

The Good News
With simple erosion control, strong leadership and some healthy eco-tourism, Gili Air can bounce back by reclaiming its shoreline with desalinated, drip-watered native plantings. Sand can be poured over enormous rolls of criss-crossing hemp nets.

The coral reefs can be regrown with a new solar power substation on each atoll. The tropical fish could be fed with bananas until the marine eco-system returns.



Why an Eco-Lodge?
Building an eco-lodge demonstrating sound environmental and business principles takes time and money. Both in very short supply on this atoll of 1,000 inhabitants.

Why Now?
Astute eco-business (green/environmental) implementation can generate a self-sustaining island economy of local jobs, an expanded medical clinic and an environmentally friendly and safer future.
