New Britain off Papua New Guinea

"Some places are just too special, too unusual, and too beautiful to leave their destiny to chance. That's the case with a system of underground caves on the island of New Britain off Papua New Guinea. Turbulent rivers and waterfalls churn through a network of tunnels and chambers formed by an upwelling of hot acidic water and drainage from heavy rains. Photographer Stephen Alvarez takes you into previously as well as newly explored regions in an expedition that ignites a spirit of discovery and highlights the importance of preserving this special place."
