Protecting the Reef

Currently an estimated 1 million new divers are certified each year with millions more snorkelling worldwide on coral reefs. While well-managed tourism can present an economic opportunity, expansion of global coral reef tourism has resulted in growing concern about associated environmental impacts.

Learning about water from the Sahara Desert

These caves are underwater, their formations stopped in time by the rising of the ocean levels, their growth resumed following another ice-age, in tune with the worlds’ passing of time.

She is remarkable and her birth was celebrated by researchers who’ve known the enormous struggle these resident sperm whales have endured to survive in the increasingly harsh environment of our current oceans.
