Located just off the coast of West New Britain, Papua New Guinea, some 2,000 meters below rainforest- covered volcanic peaks— lies the coral mecca of the world: Kimbe Bay.

Part of the Coral Triangle, an area recognised as the global centre of marine biodiversity, Kimbe Bay is home to more than 860 coral reef fish species and more than 60% of the coral species in the entire Indo-Pacific region.

It’s home, The Coral Triangle, covers an area of 2.3 million square miles of ocean and hosts more than 76% of the world’s coral species. Not only that, but Kimbe Bay is thought to be home to some of the oldest coral species in the world.
