Ten years ago in southern Raja Ampat, Indonesia, an area widely considered one of the most biodiverse marine ecosystems on the planet, sharks were nowhere to be found, reef systems were being bombed, and the future of many marine species in this area seemed hopeless. To combat this destruction, Misool Eco Resort worked alongside the surrounding communities to create a permanent marine-ranger program that would protect these local waters from the threats of illegal and destructive fishing for years to come.

Join Emmy-winning cinematographer Shawn Heinrichs and Misool Eco Resort's Ranger Program on the incredible journey of the "Rangers of the Reef".
