Latest News from our Marine Discovery Centres
Take a look inside our large marine aquarium and meet the new residents, and then join us in the lagoon as we release some lab-bred clownfish into the wild.
Keep a look out for some fresh turtle nests right here on the beach at Landaa, and then head out on safari to learn about ‘Snow’, a very unusual dolphin …
Saphire has settled in to her new life as a marine biologist, and in month 2 she’s been busy leading our guest excursions and snorkel safaris.
It’s a busy time in our turtle rescue centre, with some happy and some sad news this month.
And Saphire shares some once-in-a-lifetime photos of her incredible time on the Manta Trust research boat …
Meet Léa, who joined us from France for her marine biology internship.
She was soon helping to care for our turtle rescue patients, and learning about the Clownfish breeding programme.
Léa then took a closer look at our Reefscapers project, to study coral fragments down the microscope.
Pop in to our Discovery Centres, to see the new inhabitants in our marine aquariums, and have a look behind the scenes in the Fish Lab, to see how we produce food for our baby Clownfish – algae, rotifers and artemia.
Then join the local school students on an Immersion Tour, as they learn about the marine environment and make their very own Reefscapers coral frames.
Hello! My name is Saphire and I’m interning at the Marine Discovery Centre in Landaa Giraavaru. I’m 25 years old and recently graduated from my Master’s degree in Marine Environmental Management from the University of York (UK).
I’ve been in the Maldives for 1 month now, and I’m having a fantastic time learning about turtle care, the Fish Lab and the Reefscapers coral frames.
Hello again! I have many exciting stories to share from this last month in the Maldives.
Waving a happy “goodbye” to some of my rescue turtle friends, and diving with mantas for the very first time … my final weeks at Kuda Huraa have been nothing short of incredible! 🙂
