Raja Ampat has been known as the centre of marine biodiversity particularly for reef fish and corals. It is located in the Papuan bird’s head peninsula. A Marine Protected Area (MPA) Network, consisting of 6 MPAs, has been developed in Raja Ampat Regency by the local government and NGOs such as Conservation International Indonesia and The Nature Conservancy.

In early 2014, Conservation International Indonesia conducted a reef health monitoring in 4 MPAs in northern Raja Ampat Regency to assess the performance of MPA Network. A film is made to show a different perspective of conserving marine ecosystem from science and monitoring program.
