Please help to Shout for Sharks at CITES

In March 2013, the member countries to CITES – the world’s largest, most effective wildlife conservation agreement in existence – will vote on whether or not 11 species of sharks and rays receive protections from the devastating effects of international trade.

Before CITES leaders vote, they need to hear our voice, so we are asking you to help by shouting about protecting these exceptionally vulnerable species while there’s still time.

Week 2 of Eco Divemaster Internship in Lembeh

My last week here in Lembeh has gone too fast, but I feel that we have accomplished a lot. I started the week with a day off, where I chose to do some fun dives in the morning, and Ivone at reception arranged for me to visit Tangkoko National Park in the afternoon. It was nice to see what wildlife North Sulawesi has to offer above the surface. After being disappointed at not seeing any in Borneo, I have now seen 4 Tarsiers.

Third week has passed and things are great. I’m still amazed by the things you can see here – my friends from Sweden arrived yesterday, we went for two dives and on the second dive we saw a marbled stingray wich was insanely awesome. Their dive was also extra fun because I got to guide them!
