PLASTIC FREE JULY
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.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING OUR OCEANS 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.
