Andrew Miners is the Managing Director of the Misool Eco Resort in Southeast Asia and works with WildAid on conservation and marine enforcement activities in the area. His first dive was in February 1991 in a fast-moving, frigid river in the north of England. Through the murk, he spotted some tattered leaves, a nondescript brown fish, and lots of litter. Miners was hooked. The following year, he became a certified diver and fled the UK in search of a balmier climate and more colorful fish. He became a PADI divemaster in Thailand in 1994 and a BASC Dive Leader in 1995. The same year, he started work as a PADI dive instructor. Moving steadily toward the Equator, Miners has worked as a dive instructor and dive shop manager in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. In 1999, Miners started his own dive liveabroad businessin Indonesia on his 60 ft wooden ketch Felidae. Fluent in Bahasa Indonesia, he's sailed and dived across the entire 5,000 km length of Indonesia. After a decade's worth of peregrinations from the blustery north of England to the wild hinterlands of West Papua, Miners now calls Raja Ampat home. He holds a BA from Lancaster University in Lancaster, UK.
