Local Outreach to Omadhoo (Ari Atoll) 16-20 September
A five-day trip was planned to Ari Atoll, to meet with school children and engage with local environmental groups. For this exciting outreach opportunity, we collaborated with colleagues at the Manta Trust, and joined forces with Scuba Inn, and Drift Divers Maldives.
The aim was to empower female science students, so we held beginners’ lessons in snorkelling and scuba, and spent long days in the lagoon, ending with an exciting night snorkel! Back in the classroom, we taught students the fundamentals of Manta ID, sea turtle ID, coral biology/propagation, shark science, and much more!
