Kei Besar Nature Reserve

Kei Besar, Kei Besar Nature Reserve, Cagar Alam

Kai Besar is the main island of the Kai Archipelago in southeast Maluku. Kai Besar Nature Reserve is not established yet but, initiated by the Birdlife International Indonesia Programme, is proposed to become one in the near future. The site will probably comprise an area of 17,000 ha. in the northern part of Kai Besar and consists of relatively undisturbed, forested limestone hills.
There are daily flights from Ambon to Kai Kecil. The passenger boats Bukit Siguntang or Rinjani serve the islands, more or less weekly. Kai Besar can be reached by ferry from Ohoiren, near Langgur on Kai Kecil.
