Repost ・・・ Mantas are identified through a unique spot pattern found on their ventral surface. This is Hibiscus, a 2.7m sub adult female. She has been recorded approximately 10 times by This simple non invasive technique allows scientists to estimate population size and document movements! . . . . . 📷 Maldives

6 months ago these Acropora coral colonies were nothing more than small single branches placed on with zip ties. Today they are growing into large colonies showing lots of colour. We are already seeing a higher amount of biodiversity around the frame site! 🌏💙🐠 . . . . . .

Today our little Snoopy got released back into the blue! After suffering from an amputation due to entanglement in a ghost net, he had trouble swimming around. Now after couple of months of rehabilitation he is ready to head back into the ocean! Good luck!! 🐢 . . . .

Feeding time and dive training for Chomper in its huge enclosure. This turtle pen of 12.5m diameter and 5m deep was sponsored by and the Bank's family in order to increase the welfare of our injured turtles by giving them more space, far from the crowd and in the ocean. We hope this structure will help our turtle during the last steps of their rehabilitation to get rid of the floating syndrome and thus being able to be released sooner.

Guests on the sunset dolphin cruise this week were incredibly lucky to see a pod of around 20 Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus)!! Sperm whales are a very rare sight around here as they are oceanic creatures and usually spend their time far from shore. Sperm whales have the biggest brain of any animal known to have ever lived on Earth and they can grow up to 20m. What an amazing sight to witness!

Today is Release day for Indra! She arrived in July of 2018 to our center entangled in a ghost net, as well with a significant amount of plastic in her stomach! She is very special as she is presenting characteristics of a green turtle and a hawksbill turtle making her a hybrid! We have taken DNA samples of Indra to confirm our theory! 🐢 ❤️ . . . . . 📷

Trooper has been busy this past couple of months! Working together with and we were able to start the process of getting him customized prosthetics flippers so he can have a more natural swim. It’s just the beginning of his story, stay tuned for more updates! 🐢 . . . . . 📷

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 …

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 …

We have an exciting new vacancy for a full time Marine Biologist, to help with our conservation programmes. Apply before 5th November, and you could be celebrating Xmas and New Year in the sun! ☀️🌴🐢🐬

In preparation to catch their prey, fish larvae form an “S” shape with their bodies. This behaviour allows them to propel themselves forward at great speeds and increases their hunting success! Watch the hunting behavior of our clownfish larvae. Carla Di Santo

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.

Join Saphire on snorkel safari ! 🐠

Watch and listen at this funny pod of short-finned pilot whales encountered last week by our marine biologist with the Explorer team while cruising in between Goidhoo and Baa Atolls. These marine mammals emit complicated vocalizations which include echolocation, clicks whistles and pulse sounds. Their whistles range in dominant frequency from 2 to 14 kHz (UNIV of Rhode island, 2018). Video credit: Muhammadh Shakeeb

On the 6th of September, Naiko was released at Kuda Huraa. After spending 11 months in our care, he was ready to continue his journey into the big blue. Good Luck Little one!

Great day for our marine biologists on board of Four Seasons Explorer for the Manta expedition organised by Manta Trust.

Tori waves “goodbye” to some rescue turtle friends, and dives with mantas for the very first time! 🙂

We’re in the middle of Manta season, and we have some great photos to share with you! 🙂 Join us for the national Marine Symposium held at Malé University, and learn about our small marine aquaria. We also welcomed groups of students and teachers from neighbouring local islands, for an insight into the inner workings at our Centre.

The video of the lucky Taïssya, released on August 3rd 2018. This Olive Ridley juvenile only spent few days at the rehabilitation center after she was found entangled in a ghost net near Soneva Jani. The rescued was done on time as Taïssya was able to dive few days after and showed only superficial injuries. We wish her good luck for her journey back to the ocean.
