Ocean Views: Lucipara Islands – Indonesia (4K)

Lucipara Islands are about 50 km west of Penyu Islands, both of which belong to Molucca Islands. They are directly south of Manipa Strait near Ceram. Edmund Roberts visited the islands briefly in the 19th century. He called them Lucepara in his 1832 journal. 

On April 2021 I was called to film another expedition in Indonesia.

Even though the COVID-19 travel restrictions were still strong in Indonesia, we sailed off to Lucipara with high hopes.

After creating a new MPA in Serua, our Marine Conservation experts wanted to create a new one as well in Lucipara.

We traveled more than 1,300 nautical miles aboard The Seven Seas for a whole month, diving in one of the most remote area in Indonesia.

This short film testifies of the marine life that we encountered there and which we must protect at all costs, creating a new MPA.
