Powerful deep-sea currents sweep nutrients into Raja Ampat’s eager reefs, the life source for it’s booming populations. The same currents carry the regions larvae across the oceans to repopulate reefs in other parts of the ocean. This area’s importance to marine conservation extends far beyond its tropical borders.
