WHY IS RAJA AMPAT SO IMPORTANT TO CONSERVE?
Raja Ampat is the literal crossroads for the Indian and Pacific Ocean species. It has the highest concentration and diversity of marine life on earth, as well as the greatest coral reef biodiversity for its size in the world.
Powerful ocean currents carry larvae from Raja Ampat to reefs in other parts of Indonesia and the Pacific, making Raja Ampat the heart of the “supply chain” of species. This transport may help to replenish other reefs which have been damaged by disease, bleaching, overfishing, and other detrimental activities.
