A colorful community of elephant ear sponges, sea whips and sea fans, Misool, West Papua, Indonesia. The strong currents in the Misool area create perfect conditions for filter feeders such as soft corals, sea fans and sponges and in most areas, the rocky substrate is literally carpeted in life. In more sheltered areas, delicate hard corals also proliferate. The reefs of Raja Ampat are some of the most diverse and healthiest in the world.
