    Raja Ampat or the "Four Kings," is located off the northwestern tip of West Papua Province in Indonesia, and includes the four large islands of Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati, and Misool, along with hundreds of smaller islands. This region encompasses over four million hectares of land and sea in the heart of the Coral Triangle, an area with the world's highest coral reef and reef fish biodiversity. Recently this area has been "discovered" by SCUBA divers, snorkelers, and international conservation organizations. Come discover for yourself the unique nature of this area, a world where over 500 species of coral form reefs that put Crayola to shame. Learn about animals with names like the Walking Shark and China Dragon, living in a marine paradise, the likes of which are becoming more scarce around our globe.

    Location-themed buffet dinner and lecture or lecture only. Pre-registration required for dinner.
