The Papua Explorers Foundation Raja Ampat SEA Centre is a conservation initiative established by Papua Explorers Resort. Based at the resort, Raja Ampat SEA Centre is an NGO dedicated to conserving Raja Ampat’s marine life through Science, Education & Awareness (SEA). Working with collaborating scientists and local community members, SEA Centre serves as a platform to conduct conservation work, and valuable scientific research into the marine ecology and environment in the region.
At a local level, SEA Centre’s aim is to educate and empower both current and future generations to understand and preserve the extensive reef systems within the Raja Ampat region, upon which community livelihoods depend and are intrinsically linked. On a broader scale, we aim to connect national and international communities with the incredible marine life in Raja Ampat; the most marine biodiverse place on earth and the cradle of marine life.
Through hands on involvement in our projects, and both formal and informal education we hope that each and every person we touch goes forward to be an ambassador for the pristine, unique and irreplaceable reefs of Raja Ampat.
We look forward to sharing with you our journey as our SEA Centre grows, and we hope you will support us and become involved in our conservation endeavours. It is only with your support that we can work towards conserving Raja Ampat’s pristine wilderness, and together become ambassadors for healthy oceans worldwide!
