Gesa’s Marine Blog

Gesa’s Marine Blog

A warm hello from our Marine Discovery Centre at Landaa Giraavaru. 💙 My name is Gesa, the new marine biology intern, supporting the Reefscapers coral team during their second spawning season of the year.
My first few weeks on site were packed with new ideas, from turtle care to Artemia production and dolphin cruises – it’s always great to broaden your skill set!

Our Flying Turtles Program ✈️

Our Flying Turtles Program ✈️

Some of our rescue turtles are unable to be released due to the severity of their permanent injuries. Turtles suffering from long-term ‘buoyancy syndrome’ and those with missing flippers are vulnerable in the ocean and would struggle to find food.
Ongoing, we try to re-home these patients to overseas aquariums, to receive a high standard of lifelong care, and to act as global ambassadors about the threats that sea turtles face.

September was so full of activity! 🏃‍♀️From large presentations to local island visits, from egg-laden coral colonies to interviews with global TV crews 📺 … we didn’t have a spare second to come up for breath! 🤿
Luckily, we are a bunch of all-rounders, able to sub for each other in excursions and projects, so the upcoming coral spawning season will be all hands on the reef, day and night! 🌞 🌙

Maldivian Shrimps

Come down to the Fish Lab to meet our Shrimps! 🦐
We have been expanding our Shrimp breeding program over recent months, and now have residents from five different family groups. We are studying and documenting the morphological differences between the different Shrimps, their eggs, and larvae, and hope to develop protocols to successfully breed them in our dedicated marine aquaria.

I’m Kelly, the newest Marine Biology Intern at Marine Savers. 👋
When I first caught sight of the turquoise-blue waters outside the plane window, I was speechless … photos cannot do these beautiful Maldivian islands justice. After a quick ferry ride, I was welcomed by the friendly faces of the people who would soon become my good friends. My marine adventures started the very next day, and there hasn’t been a dull moment since …

Monica’s Chapter #3

Monica’s Chapter #3

My time as a Reefscapers marine biology intern has come to an end in the Maldives, but I still have some adventures to share!
I continued caring for our sea turtle patients, made new coral frames with guests, swam with mantas in Hanifaru Bay, and encountered hundreds of dolphins. 🐬
Thanks everyone at Marine Savers, for embracing me as part of their team, and for all their patience and knowledge shared. 👋
