Raja Ampat’s Award-Winning Resort, Misool and Misool Foundation

Misool Marine Reserve ended 2017 on a justifiable high with being named as a Mission Blue Hope Spot! The co-founders of Misool and Misool Foundation, Marit and Andrew Miners, brought their passion for the ocean to bear and have shown how everyday people can affect real change.

At the beginning…

Millions of tourists flock to beautiful Hawaii every year to enjoy the natural beauty of the islands. Many are drawn to the stunning beaches and the superb diving on offer in the North Pacific Ocean.

Recently Sen. Mike Gabbard introduced the bill that would prohibit the sale of over the counter sunscreens containing the chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate.

“Hawaii is the first state in the nation to pass a measure of this magnitude. The world was watching. We delivered. Preserve and protect our ocean environment!” said state Sen. Will Espero on Twitter after the SB2571 bill passed in his chamber. If the bill is signed by Hawaii Governor, David Ige, it will go into effect 1 January 2021.
