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. After several years of focus on reef development projects, and coming to the realization that the long term viability of the reef was under threat due to a shift in underwater currents between May-October that prevented the coral holding firm 5 metres below the surface, the foundation made the decision to switch its focus in 2010 to turtle conservation. 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.
