Latest News from our Marine Discovery Centres
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! 🙂
This month, Tori welcomes injured rescue turtles to our Rehabilitation Centre, and learns some new coral propagation techniques for our Reefscapers frames.
Next, there’s an exciting trip to Baa Atoll in search of mantas, and we discover some of Aku’s clownfish secrets down in Landaa’s Fish Lab …
Help our apprentices, as they get hands-on with our marine ‘touch pool’, before joining our Junior Marine Savers on snorkel safari to learn about sea anemones.
And then venture beyond the reef as we release hundreds of turtle hatchlings safely into the ocean.
Another month has flown by at Kuda Huraa, and it’s been one of new experiences and wonderful surprises for Tori.
We’ve been busily treating the turtle patients at our rehabilitation centre, there are some thrilling marine encounters with pilot whales and eagle rays, and the month ends with an exciting opportunity …
Catch up with our Turtle ID and Dolphin ID projects, and then join us in the Fish Lab to see our Clark’s Clownfish juveniles. Our assessment of wild sea anemones is continuing, and we also have news of the Green turtle nests, found on the beach right here at Landaa Giraavaru!
Spend more time with our intern Tori, as she ventures out on Dolphin Safari to see the Spinners in action.
She’s also been welcoming some tiny turtle hatchlings to our Head Start programme, before waving a «Bon Voyage» to Stevie, our 25kg rescue Olive Ridley, equipped with her very own satellite tag!
