THE FOUNDERS

SeaChange Indonesia was founded by Dr. Alexandra Indra Seifer and Mr. Jake Langford, ocean experts and compassionat advocats for the environment. They are active in Indonesia since 20 years. Their goal is it not only to save the coral reefs but to do so together with the local communities and businesses. Empowering and supporting them in their great efforts and ideas is the key to a successful overall eco strategy. 

Their business companies are blue prints for eco aware businesses. They are dedicated to supporting the marine park goals and showing that coral reef restauration, sustainability, green energy, waste management and community support can play essential roals in green tourism and wealth for a whole region. Alex and Jake use this knowledge to support eco initiatives in being successful and long lasting.

She is well established in the local community, being also originally from this area, and is a wonderful ray of sunshine, both for the future of conservation as well as personally.
