We Care


This resort has created population databases for both reef and oceanic mantas present in Raja Ampat. Guests can become involved in the collection and identification of photos, and gain a greater awareness of these creatures and local environmental threats. The project also has an acoustic tagging program to learn more about the local reef mantas, looking at critical habitat use and migratory routes knowing they can travel up to 600 kilometres - potentially far outside of the Shark and Manta Sanctuary. In addition, and with the assistance of WildAid and Seacology, the Misool Eco Resort has built two community projects, one in Fafanlap and one in Usaha Jaya where they built a kindergarten, community centre, a market, and a purifying drinking water system.

Misool Eco Resort is devoted to educating local schools about wildlife preservation. They started a floating library by bringing


books on marine conservation to the children. Today, it has evolved into two permanent libraries and a program that supports six full time teachers. Misool Eco Resort, in collaboration with Shark Savers and the support of the Palau, Maldives and Hawaiian government, organised a petition that turned Raja Ampat into a shark and Manta ray sanctuary. Together, their most significant achievement was getting the local village leaders to fine anyone fishing in the area. This eventually led to a regional law being passed that bans shark and manta ray fishing. Based on Mark Allen’s research, a fish expert from Murdoch University, since 2007, fish biomass has tripled in the Misool Eco Resort area. 


“Set on a small island amidst a 1200 kilometre conservation area that is home to sharks, this private island resort has 18 bungalows located either on the beach or over the water.”

Kim, the discoverer.
