Hello, my name is Rafaela. I’m 25 years old and I graduated from my Master’s degree in Marine Biology at the University of Algarve.
I have been here for 5 weeks so far, and I’m really enjoying it and learning a lot. I have spent time treating the turtle patients, monitoring coral frames around the island, and taking guest snorkel safaris.
Meet Juliet, our latest marine biology intern joining us all the way from the U.S. of A. It’s been a busy first month on the job, with many interesting experiences along the way.
Juliet goes hands-on with our Green turtle hatchlings and injured Olive Ridley patients, and is soon helping with our marine presentations and guest safaris … both above and below the waves.
Come and join us down in the Fish Lab for some interesting stories … our baby Clownfish are developing unique patterns, and one of our male seahorses has given birth!
We have updates from our turtle experts about beach nests and the national turtle ID project, and there’s an open invitation to meet the injured turtle patients and hatchlings in our rehabilitation centre.
