Weekly Summary #3, Dec 2013
Our critter corner explores Rhinopias: divers get very excited about them when they see them in Lembeh, but what is a Rhinopias?
On the conservation front, more good news for sharks as China bans shark-fin dinners for officials.
We also have news about Singapore Airlines and SIlk Air increasing their baggage allowance, which is good news for divers with lots of dive gear!
Weekly round-up: the two Rhinopias are still around in Lembeh, we are heaps of turtles in Bunaken, and those pesky Mola Molas are still around in Lembongan – don’t they know its out of season?
Another reason that we like Shark Savers is that they are also involved in protecting Manta Rays, something that is an important part of the environment in Two Fish Divers Lembongan where we have almost-permanent sightings of these fantastic creatures.
Just two days ago, really only a day and a half out of the water, Sara and I took our final exam’s and turned in our final projects for our Dive Master program. It is hard to believe that we are finished.
Not sure if everyone noticed, but in mid-Nov 2013 Singapore Airlines and SilkAir announced that they were increasing their baggage allowance for all flights by 10kg across all classes. For flights to and from the United States or Brazil, where a piece allowance applies, customers traveling in Singapore Airlines Suites, First Class and Business Class will be entitled to check in two pieces of luggage of up to 32kg each.
