Hello, I’m Chathu, a Master’s student at the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka.
I’ve spent ten weeks as a marine biology intern at the Marine Discovery Center in Landaa Giraavaru, and there is so much to learn about the different aspects of the marine biology programmes here, including Turtle care, the Fish Lab and Coral propagation, plus turtle safaris, adventure snorkels and dolphin cruises.
My name is Louise, I am a French marine biology student from the IMBRSea Master. I am currently working on the island of Landaa Giraavaru in the Maldives, to work on my Master’s thesis with the Reefscapers team.
For my project, I will be assessing the growth rate of the coral frames that are located around the island as part of the reef restoration programme.
Hi, I’m Julia, 28 years young from England, and I’m the current marine biology intern here at Kuda Huraa!
At the moment, there are large numbers of adult Olive Ridley turtles drifting to the Maldives trapped in discarded (ghost) fishing gear, often wounded and dehydrated when they’re rescued. So we are busy turtle feeding and monitoring, and discussing our conservation efforts with resort guests.
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.
