We have a packed report and some great photos for you this month, with everything from Clownfish and sea anemones to our new turtle photo-morph project.
Learn how to help with our turtle ID submissions, and join us for a visit from the Parley plastics people.
We are pleased to welcome Jean-Gabriel to our Fish Lab, as the latest intern to join us at Marine Savers.
He will be learning about the national Sea Turtle Identification Database, and experimenting with our breeding programme for Maldivian and Clark’s Clownfish down in the Fish Lab.
Catch up with Greg’s second month with us here at Landaa Giraavaru, as he completes his important work on Maldivian coral DNA.
He waves goodbye to three of our rescue turtle patients, and still find time to swim with mantas at the world famous Hanifaru Bay!
Irene looks back over her last 6 months as a marine biologist, sharing some of her wonderful stories and exciting photographs of Kuda Huraa.
She introduces our Junior Marine Savers to the resident rescue sea turtles, and there’s also time for celebrity surfer-spotting!
Catch up with the latest news, direct from our teams at Kuda Huraa and Landaa Giraavaru, from food experiments in our Fish Lab to new turtles in our national ID database.
And then join our Apprenticeship Class as they introduce some lab grown sea anemones and juvenile Clownfish back into the lagoon.
Meet Greg, our latest intern who joins us from the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium.
Greg’s speciality is corals, and he’s keen to start researching the corals in our lagoon to understand resilience to bleaching. There is also time to get to know our resident rescue turtles, with an emotional ‘bon voyage’ to Ossy.
