The Last Best Place
Burt and I first heard about Triton Bay from Dr. Gerald Allen, an old friend and one of the world’s leading ichthyologists. In May 2006, Gerry, along with Dr. Mark Erdmann, senior advisor to Conservation International’s Indonesian Marine Program, and several other scientists also working for CI, traveled beyond the southern limits of Raja Ampat into the unknown waters of the Fak Fak Regency. The Conservation International team concentrated on Triton and Etna Bays where they hoped to discover a “hot spot,” an area of maximum species diversity and endemism similar to what they had found in Raja Ampat five years earlier.
