The Last Resort: The fight to preserve Indonesia's most important tropical paradise
When Andrew Miners first arrived in the Indonesian island village Babitim he was struck by two things: the tropical paradise surrounding him, and the corpses of the mutilated sharks strewn around the beach.
Now Andrew's efforts have been fulfilled as "the worlds most bio-diverse marine habitat" is officially protected by a 425 sq/km "no-take zone", barring anybody but locals to fish inside the perimeter. Featuring astounding underwater footage of marine wildlife set against the brutal realities on board the shark-trawlers, conservationists and natives cooperate to create a model for ocean preservation that "could inform the way we manage oceans around the rest of the world." See Misool Eco Resort.
