On the Pari Island, or rather the tail of the island west of the island. Section has been exploited by the Centre for Development of Oceanographic Sciences Institute of Indonesia as a home study of marine conservation and research for sustainable development, especially the waters of Indonesia in Jakarta Bay is able diberdayagunakan.
Pari island also has its own uniqueness in terms of vegetation environment than almost all islands in the Thousand Islands. Pari Island in the mainland according to the results of research Research Development Center for Oceanography (P2O) Indonesian Institute of Sciences has a basin that can accommodate the absorption of rainwater that falls onto the surface.
So that water from Pari Island is a fresh water, unlike the other islands that have the best standard is brackish water. The existence of depressions in the land yan Pari Island and receiving fresh water was an impact on existing vegetation heterogeneity in Pari Island.

Generally, the coastal islands are small only in the form of mangrove vegetation and palm trees, but at Pari Island, according to research from P2O and able to live sustainably on this island.
Not far from there Pari island northwest cluster of small islands where the preservation of the environment is good, there were varied marine life of coral reefs in a single unit with a water depth range. There is for example the Holy Island, an island inhabited only by a guard of this island, it has a garden under the sea with a variety of depths.
To view the marine biota, a well-maintained, but we can not swim though, we can see by snorkeling in the habitat that exists at the location into the 0.5 meter to 2 meters. As for the marine biota, which is more complex with a certain depth can be assisted with the diving. All divided and arranged neatly on the Holy Island.
