Good news for sharks and their guardians!

Our second Triple Whammy Clean-up took place on November 5th where all three Two Fish Divers resorts dived against debris simultaneously! Between Bunaken, Lembeh and Nusa Lembongan we collected 246 kilos of marine debris!
In September 2012, Dr Mark Erdmann and Dr Gerry Allen were visiting Manado as Guest Lecturers for a biology workshop. At the same time they conducted a survey of fish species to measure the marine biodiversity in North Sulawesi, and it threw up some most absolutely amazing unexpected results. Namely that North Sulawesi has more marine diversity than Komodo and West Thailand, so now you can dive some of the best marine diversity on the planet with us!
How did this reach this conclusion? To begin with, they recorded 967 species from 329 genera and 84 families, and they said that they were “nowhere near reaching a plateau with every day adding 25-40 new records to the list!”.
