We need your help. Without Misool Foundation's core projects, we risk losing it all. 

Our goal is to defend the heart of marine biodiversity against increasing pressures of marine extraction and development. Through constant vigilance, community engagement, scientific research, and sustainable financing models we aim to protect this region for generations to come.  

We need your help to do it.  The annual budget for all of Misool Foundation's programs is close to 1 million USD.  Just operating the Ranger Patrol to protect the Misool Marine Reserve costs nearly 250,000 USD.  

Donations of any size are appreciated.  We are an extremely cost-effective organization, and funds go a long way in Indonesia:

  • 30 USD buys enough fuel for our Community Recycling vessel to collect rubbish from 4 local Misool Villages

  • 400 USD buys enough fuel for one patrol around the 300,000 acre/1220 sq km Misool Marine Reserve

  • 3,000 USD covers our Misool Ranger Patrol's monthly payroll
