Friends, partners, links
Below you will find links to useful external resources on visiting West Papua, as well as links to our friends and partners, some of whom we unashamedly recommend and promote because of their genuine, proven commitment to nature conservation and sustainable community development in Indonesian New Guinea. In addition, you will find a number of purely reciprocal, commercial links here.
West Papua accommodations
Misool Eco Resort (MER) is located on
Batbitim Island off southeastern Misool in the fabled Raja Ampat archipelago
off New Guinea's western tip (approximately, this is in the middle of
nowhere!). MER is the beating heart of its very own 425 sq km marine no-take
zone, the first of its kind anywhere in eastern Indonesia.

We feel both proud and priviliged to have been provided with the unique opportunity to assist, and get to know the remarkable people behind Swiss-based production house ExplorAction while filming in the Arfak Mountains in July 2007. In fact, the seven-month 'Papua Barat' documentary-making project of the gentle Gentil-brothers quite probably stands out as the longest filming project ever to have been executed in the territory. Get the full story on 'Papua Barat' here http://www.exploraction.ch/07

on the five continents in order to produce documentaries that, through
the images, blend adventure, science, and the emotion of discovery.

Philip Koch Nature Wildlife photography by Philip Koch.
Carel Pieter Brest van Kempen has brought
a singular vitality to wildlife art. Uncompromisingly detailed and artfully
composed, his work is at once vivid and startling, depicting seldom-illustrated
species engaged in life's struggles — alive. To view Carel's work
is to be pulled into the drama and diversity of life.
