The sanctuary began as a joint effort between hoteliers, activists and the White River fishermen to ensure the once-abundant marine life returned. The White River Fishermen’s Association (WRFA) and the White River Marine Association (WRMA) were then formed and through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), they joined forces to create the sanctuary which now provides a safe haven for fish to produce millions of offspring. 

Since it began, the WRFS has also spearheaded a thriving coral restoration programme. Degraded coral reefs are being rehabilitated furthering the sanctuary’s “500 in 5” goal.
