OTHER WILDLIFE at Biodiversity

Besides the spectacular marine Biodiversity, Raja Ampat also has an abundance of other wildlife. Surrounded by nature and just behind the virgin jungle we are integrated perfectly and with this advantage the animals come to us! This is why when you come visit Indonesia and stay in our diving resort in Raja Ampat you not only see marine life but all the animals that live in this paradise!

The Spotted Cuscus

This peculiar animal has found a home with us at Biodiversity. You will spot our resident male around the main areas as well as near the cottages almost every evening. He prefers to be up in the trees while looking for food, but he has occasionally joined us at the bar for a “banana Smoothie”. All you need to do is look up or listen carefully at night and you’ll spot him!

Here are some interesting facts about this beautiful animal.

The White Lipped Tree Frog

This bright green frog is can also be spotted around the resort. You would think the first thing you see would be the frog, but actually the noise the frog makes is what gives it away! It makes a loud barking/croaking noise which is very distinct this frog.

The Common Tiger Butterfly

People always seem to smile when they see butterfly’s. It could be because of their amazing colours or graceful and delicate movements or maybe they are a true reflection of how fragile nature can be if we do not protect it!
