World Ocean Day 2014

World Ocean Day 2014

The World Ocean Day with Life’n Dive 2014 meant a lot of awareness and activities. Together with the staff of SeaExplorer Dive Centre and Reethi Beach Resort, we organised a presentation on turtle biology and man made threats to their survival. We also participated in the global awareness effort “Selfie for the Sea” (see pictures below) that was organised by World Ocean Day. In the following days, the guests had the possibility to observe turtles in the wild on an excursion to the local turtle reef at Donfan Island, where they could observe two of the seven marine turtle species, Hawksbill and Green Sea Turtles. During the excursion they learned how to identify the species by their distinct characteristics and what they can do in daily life to reduce the risks for wild turtles. See you 2015?!!
