Misool Eco Resort has teamed up with the Nature Conservancy to expand their existing No-Take Zone from 425 sq km to over 1200 sq km. The new Daram Marine Area will protect some of the most impressive reefs in Southeast Misool, Raja Ampat. The Seven Seas is joining Misool Eco Resort in the drive to protect this new area by co-sponsoring an Auction for a 14 night combination trip with 7 days on the Seven Seas and 7 days at the Resort. All profits from the auction will go to fund the Daram Project.

This is an incredible opportunity to make a real difference in protecting a critical marine ecosystem. Go to Daram Project to learn more.

Wow! Great to hear. I didn't stay at MER but spent a couple hours there last December and it is beautiful! Good to know they continue to protect the reefs!!!
