Weekly Roundup April 1st - April 9th

These past few weeks have been a bit unusual for us here at RCP.

We started with the release of 2 sea turtles. The first had swallowed fishing hooks and was ready to be returned after a short trip to turtle hospital and the second was the little hawksbill we called Nam Tok.

We would love to show you a picture of the first turtle however it went so fast we weren’t even able to get a photo ourselves.

Nam Tok however was not camera shy and we are able to snap some much needed photos of him.

We said goodbye to Kirsty as she went off to look for whale sharks on a Thai Whale Shark Expedition but more about that later. 

Whilst she was away we got to work on our new artificial reefs ready for deployment. Practiced our EMP skills and worked on our drupella collecting.

Once Kirsty was back we jumped into coral spawning and for 2 wonderful nights we bathed in the gamete bundles of both hard and soft corals.

As well as coral spawning we also got to spend some time with some of our favourite creatures

We then jumped into some exciting projects with our interns as they look more closely at coral disease prevalence around the island and rounded off this week with a layer on concrete on our soon to be deployed artificial structures.
