Weekly Roundup June 7th - June 12th
This week was all about EMPS, Mooring lines and of course World Oceans Day
We started the week with disease and an emp survey
Then on Tuesday to celebrate World Oceans Day we started with a lecture on plastics then we had a beach clean and ended with an underwater clean up.
Thanks to all that came along and joined us we were able to remove 159.6kg of trash from above and below the water.
We also welcomed 2 new students and a new intern into the conservation team and we spent the rest of the week learning all about indicator species and why it is important to monitor the reef ecosystem.
Flatworms, Sea Slugs and Cushion Stars are just a few of invert species.
Juvenile groupers and long fin bannerfish are included in our fish surveys.
and not forgetting the saw like septa of Ctenactis, the low cones of Diploastrea and the axial polyps of Acropora.
We look forward to next week as we jump back into coral tax and diseases.
Until next time remember its
