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! 🙂

Vanessa’s Marine Biology Internship

Vanessa’s Marine Biology Internship

After spending several months with the Marine Savers team, I can say for sure it was one of the best experiences of my life!
I was able to help with the variety of different projects at the Marine Discovery Centre, and had the pleasure of working with an amazing team of dedicated biologists.
