Latest News from our Marine Savers Teams
Check back regularly – we’ve been posting monthly updates for 10+ years!
Join our Marine Savers teams underwater, as they monitor for signs of coral spawning on our Reefscapers frames. 🟠
On land, we study the common problem of ‘turtle buoyancy syndrome’, and our Junior Planktologists discover some fascinating creatures under the microscope. 🦠
We also attend the 2023 Addu Coral Festival to share knowledge with fellow national and international reef experts.
Hi there! 👋 I’m Carlo, the new Assistant Coral Biologist at Kuda Huraa. Having just graduated in Marine Sciences, this is the perfect opportunity to work in the field of marine conservation.
The crystal-clear Maldivian waters already feel like home, and my arrival coincided with a mesmerising coral spawning event. I am excited to be collecting data to better understand coral health and reef resilience to warming oceans.
Hello! My name is Hailey, and I am Kuda Huraa’s latest Reefscapers intern. I flew halfway around the globe to get here, and I can definitely say that it has been absolutely worth it. 💙
I am getting hands-on experience in coral restoration and field work, monitoring for coral spawning under a full moon, and treating our sick sea turtle patients rescued from entanglement in ghost netting.
I first joined Reefscapers’ internship program in May 2022, and I am now thrilled to be stepping into my predecessor’s coral shoes to take on new challenges!
I feel so lucky to spend countless hours in the water, maintaining our coral propagation program and collecting research data. Despite being here for a whole year now, I am still blown away by the incredible marine biodiversity that the Maldives offers. 💙
So much happened in my final weeks, I’m very excited to be able to share it with you!
My ‘Secret Beach’ corals idea was a great way to celebrate our loved ones, and it was very rewarding to lead such a large-scale event.
And we waved a fond farewell to sea turtle Michelangela, now recovered and released back into the ocean. 💙
Hi everyone! My name is Edward, and I’m the new Marine Biologist here at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru.
My focus is caring for the turtle patients in our Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Centre. We currently have four residents – Frisbee, Maw, Artemis, and Xanchi, all of whom are victims of entanglement with ghost nets (discarded fishing gear) and suffering various injuries.
Join our turtle teams as we care for our resident injured sea turtle patients. It’s a full time job treating their wounds, hand-feeding with special diets, and developing environmental enrichments.
Accompany our coral experts as they start monitoring for signs of coral bleaching, and then visit us down in the Fish Lab, where our research continues into the breeding cycles of various Maldivian shrimp species. 🦐
We commemorated Valentine’s Day with our special Reefscapers heart-shaped frames – an appreciation for our work colleagues, and a declaration of our unconditional love for corals! 💜
Be part of the change you want to see – start building your very own reef alongside our dedicated team of resident marine biologists. By sponsoring a coral frame, you help maintain the beauty and biodiversity of the underwater world. 💙
Join Bethany at Kuda Huraa, as she treats our resident Olive Ridley turtles, found injured and entangled in drifting ghost fishing nets. And then take a rehabilitation swim in the lagoon with Emma and Ari.
Meanwhile, Dr Katrina, our resident veterinarian, is monitoring our turtle nests down on the beach at Landaa, awaiting the precious little hatchlings. 💚
