Wakatobi is the name given to the Indonesian reef named after a several Indonesian islands which surround the reef and make up 95% of Indonesian and East Asian reefs all of which are endangered. Their full names are Wangi-wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia, and Binongko. Wakatobi is home to over 750 of the world's 850 coral species! Our dusty pink, nude, white and gold banded bracelet sits beautifully alongside its sister, the Great barrier reef, to celebrate these remarkable animal rainforests with thousands of species living in areas larger than most countries!
Coral Reefs (Animal rainforests of the seas)
Coral reefs are the rainforests of the seas - massive habitats for animals supporting more than a quarter of all marine life and well as the hundreds of millions of people who rely on reefs around the world. But unlike rainforests, coral reefs are animals not plants, made up of millions of tiny little polyps. They are a critical to the oceanic food chain supporting the phytoplankten, the small animals which absorb more than half the world's carbon dioxide and produce more than half its oxygen. Climate Change is one of their greatest threats as it heats up the sea which then bleaches the coral and kills it - in plain english, we are cooking our reefs.
Looks great worn with any bracelet in pink or white.
Handmade with glass beads, this stretch bracelet measures approximately 17cm / 6.7 inches in length which may vary slightly with bead pattern.
