Raja Ampat, Indonesia is considered by many as the “Amazon of the Sea”. Over 1,500 species of coral reef fish and over 500 species of hard coral call it home. That means 75% of all hard coral species in the world exist here. Raja Ampat is the most marine bio-diverse region on the planet; however it needs our help.
Friendly Drifter was created by concerned individuals who witnessed a need to address the plastic waste issue in Raja Ampat. Plastic waste is extremely hazardous to all marine life. Currently no proper recycling facilities exist in the area, making it difficult for locals to dispose of plastics responsibly.
