ABOUT

Marine Conservation Science in the Heart of the Coral Triangle

Western Papua has the highest marine biodiversity on the planet, and supports communities highly dependent on marine resources. The region is Indonesia’s highest priority for marine biodiversity conservation, and boasts tremendous opportunities for effective coral reef and tropical fisheries co-management. I will provide highlights and lessons learned about a large-scale collaboration between local governments, international NGOs, nearby communities, and involved donor foundations, to monitor and safeguard marine resources in Raja Ampat, West Papua.
