Indonesia is now home to the world's largest manta ray sancturary

The Indonesian government has announced the ban of manta ray fishing in the country’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ). This EEZ spans about 6 million square kilometers (or 2.3 million square miles) and is the world’s largest protected area for these beautiful species. In recent years, manta ray fishing has become popular and has led to its vulnerability towards extinction. 

Rarely seen in the ocean, swimming with manta rays is a unique opportunity. I was blessed to have the opportunity to swim with manta rays last December. Seeing these breathtaking species swim so gracefully and somersault under the sea changed my life. Visit Indonesia to experience the rare opportunity of swimming with manta rays! Remember to keep the ocean clean to keep manta rays healthy and happy!

Cheers, 

Proud Indonesian

Today is a momentous day. Indonesia has officially sworn in its new President, Joko Widodo. It marks the beginning of a new chapter and a chapter I hope will be for a better Indonesia.
