I visited the heart of the coral triangle in 2006. This area of extremely high marine invertebrate biodiversity includes the waters off the western tip of the island of New Guinea (West Papua, New Guinea) Indonesia. Along the south side near the western tip lies the McCluer Gulf and the village of Kokas.
