Check back regularly – we’ve been posting monthly updates for 10+ years!
Lost ‘ghost nets’ are adrift around the world’s oceans, creating a home for fish and marine life that attracts curious hungry turtles, which can easily become entangled in the ropes, lines and net filaments.
We are now in the NE monsoon season, and the prevailing ‘Iruvai’ winds bring many injured and entangled non-native Olive Ridley turtles into Maldivian waters.
It’s my final week, and almost time to wave au revoir to all my new friends 👋
During my 3 month internship, I acquired a solid grounding in marine biology, worked on my own coral project, and experienced interesting guest-facing roles.
I will sincerely miss the whole Reefscapers and Resort teams… thank you for this extraordinary experience! 💙
A very busy month, as our teams monitor the latest spawning event on our house reefs and coral frames. Back in our Fish Lab, we record the development of coral embryos from fertilisation to settlement stage.
We also performed a daring mid-ocean rescue, saving not one but two injured sea turtles from entanglement in a single drifting ghost net. 🐢🕸️🐢
Join us for an exciting snorkel excursion, to swim over beautiful corals and to marvel at the marine biodiversity living on Maldivian reefs.
Back on shore, go behind the scenes at our turtle rescue centres to meet our rehabilitation patients, learn about their treatments, and wave Bon Voyage to Noonu fitted with a satellite tracking tag. 📍
Hi, my name is Stephanie, I’m from France and I am the new intern for Reefscapers at Kuda Huraa. 👋
I’ve just finished my first eventful month with the team. At the Marine Discovery Centre, we offer guests the chance to make their own coral frame, to help restore the island’s corals, and to raise awareness of the effects of climate change and the El Nino phenomenon.
We invite you into the classroom, to join our Reefscapers teams in local outreach projects, educating the next generation of passionate marine biologists. 💙
And then catch up with our latest shrimp-breeding and mariculture projects in the Fish Lab, as we reveal the complex food chains necessary to feed the hungry residents in our marine aquariums. 🐠
This month, we invite you to join our teams underwater to explore the colourful marine biodiveristy of the Maldives! 🐠
We have guided snorkel tours and dolphin-spotting excursions, plus marine life presentations to bring you up to speed with all the local wildlife.
And then join our Reefscapers experts to make your very own dedicated coral frame.
Hi, my name is Shyler, the new marine biologist intern at Kuda Huraa. I have been helping to restore damaged corals, and educating our Resort guests about the marine wildlife they may encounter while visiting the Maldives. 🌴
I am also taking our turtle patient ‘Maw’ for ocean swims to build strength – she was found entangled in a ghost fishing net, missing two flippers and suffering from buoyancy syndrome.
Catch up with our Reefscapers teams of marine biologists this month, working above and below the waves. 🌊
Join us down in the Fish Lab for some unique breeding experiments with ornamental shrimp, read about turtle patient Maw, and meet Sol underwater as he uses photo-transects to assess coral cover and diversity.
