Having raised B1.4 million to date, The Pure Blue Foundation's  initial emphasis was restoring the damaged reef off Phang Nga's Natai Beach.

To date, the foundation has released more than 290 Leatherback turtles, 47 Oliver Ridley turtles and 24 Hawksbill turtle into the Andaman Sea to repopulate the dwindling turtle population.
