"Exploring Indonesia's Raja Ampat Islands" explores an underwater frontier in the heart of marine biodiversity.
The Raja Ampat Islands are found off the coast of Papua, Indonesia, in one of the remotest areas of the world for scuba diving.
Learn about the area and its abundant sea life, some of which is only found here. See large schools of fish, the Wobbegone shark, mantis shrimp, and creatures that only come out at night.

Many colorful flat worms, nudibranchs and sea slugs dot the reef. Flashing File Clams are named for their unusual bioluminescence that streaks along the edge of there mantle. They are found here.
