Weekly Roundup March 15th - March 19th
Another week is done and dusted.
This week we welcomed our new intern Conrad and were joined by 3 students from Loop Abroad Emilee, Jennifer & Alexa.
The start of the week was spent teaching our students about our EMP surveys at Chalok & Sai Nuan.
We then took to the shallows to go on a hunt for the corallivores that we know as Drupella. The team did a great job and were able to remove 2,246 Drupella from the reef with some of those even falling into the less than 1cm category talk about eagle eyes.
Thursday was time to explore the old mineral accretion site of Hin Fai, visibility wasn’t the best and the current picked up but we had a great time exploring the site and came across a bunch of different sea slug species.
We rounded off the week with a trip to explore our Coral Aid site and use the coral predator knowledge from earlier in the week to look out for Crown of Thorns.
Another wonderful week has come to the end. We end by saying goodbye to Alexa, Jennifer and Emilee and finished our last dive of the week with some over under shots.
Until next time remember
