Sustainable tourism is a big part of Sorido Bay Resort. A portion of our profits goes directly to the RARCC, a conservation arm established in 1993. The RARCC also aims to protect and preserve Raja Ampat’s natural beauty, by encouraging, assisting, and facilitating research on its flora and fauna. The RARCC also has projects that combat poverty among the local population, teach the local communities about sustainable use of their natural resources, promote green awareness among the locals and assist the locals to work in sustainable tourism.

The RARCC works closely with the local Papuan people by providing them with better alternatives and education so that they would abandon destructive practices such as illegal logging, blast fishing, shark finning, or turtle poaching. Other conservation projects include coral farming and coral reef restoration with spectacular environmental growth in our house reef, the richest house reef in the world.
