Story at-a-glance -

  • Andrew and Marit Miners built Misool Eco Resort, a resort and marine reserve located in southern Raja Ampat, Indonesia, which is home to one of the planet’s most biodiverse habitats
  • The eco resort combines private enterprise with conservation, using profits from tourism to promote marine conservation and to support the livelihood of native islanders
  • Misool Eco Resort is surrounded by a large “No Take Zone” that prohibits fishing and the removal of marine life from the area
  • The conservation effort has transformed a marine habitat once terrorized by shark finners and dynamite fisherman into a protected reserve for sharks and other marine life; two dozen new species of fish have been discovered in the protected area in the last five years
  • The resort pays for the salaries of three local teachers, as well as funds a floating library that supplies local children with books on conservation

Misool Eco Resort is a special kind of paradise, doubling as a luxurious beach getaway and a marine reserve that's home to one of the most biodiverse places on the planet.

The featured documentary, "The Last Resort," tells the story of how Andrew and Marit Miner succeeded in building an eco-diving resort designed to halt destructive fishing practices and protect and preserve marine life.
