BLUE RINGED OCTOPUS MAKES A COMEBACK!

BLUE RINGED OCTOPUS MAKES A COMEBACK!THIS WEEK IN LEMBEH… The Blue Ringed Octopus makes a comeback!  We usually find in Lembeh  that Blue Ringed Octopus are either abundant or rarely spotted ( this is to do with their life cycle), and at the moment we have been experiencing the latter… The combination of fewer Blue Ringed Octopus and their superb camouflage make them much harder to find… But not this week!  We had a few “orders” for Blue Rings this week from our guests and all were fulfilled!

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.
