Bunaken National Parks extends over an area of 890.65 km² of which only 3% is terrestrial, including Bunaken Island, as well as the islands of Manado Tua, Mantehage, Nain and Siladen. This park has attracted many scientists and divers all over the world because of its high marine biodiversity. The island is around 30mins by boat from downtown Manado City. For those who are willing to work on mangroves (as one of supporting components of the coral reef), there is a possibility to work in Mantehage Island which has a large mangrove coverage.
