Plunge into one of the greatest spectacles of biodiversity in the world.
The Bird’s Head Seascape in eastern Indonesia is an area the size of Great Britain that holds more species of fish than Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and more species of coral than the entire Caribbean Ocean.
Dive in virtual reality with Ronald Mambrasar, an indigenous fisherman-turned-coral-scientist, and his son, Valen, through crystal-clear waters teeming with fish. It’s hard to believe that a little over a decade ago these treasures were almost lost — only to be rescued by one of the world’s most ambitious community-based conservation programs.
Conservation International is grateful to work in close partnership with the people of West Papua, the government of Indonesia, The Nature Conservancy, WWF and more than thirty other partners. Special thanks to The Walton Family Foundation for its long-standing support of the Bird's Head Seascape Initiative.
