Our Course Director Brendon Sing is presenting a weekly Shark Guardian Presentation at Two Fish Bunaken. As divers we do care about sharks and this is a great way to learn more about them and have chat about this subject at Blue Parrot Cafe.
SHARK GUARDIAN PRESENTATION
The Shark Guardian multimedia based slide show has been in development for over 10 years. The presentation is unique and incorporates a combination of brilliant images and films, leaving the audience amazed and with a new found insight and appreciation for sharks. The presentation is designed to show people the true and natural beauty of sharks, their role in the eco-system and why sharks are vital for all life on Earth. The Shark Guardian presentation is suitable for all ages and when necessary it is altered to suit the audience.
As part of the presentation Brendon wants to show the audience how they can help and get involved with shark conservation efforts anywhere in the world. Through education and action, with the belief that we can make a difference and with the right motivation, we can achieve stronger protection for sharks worldwidePLEASE VISIT THE SHARK GUARDIAN WEBSITE

Friday 22nd April 2011
All the guests at Two Fish Divers Lembeh helped to first do a beach clean up in the front of the resort, then after that off to the Police Pier Reef for an underwater cleanup!!!!
Special thanks again to all those who helped on the day: Hugo, Phil, Nickie, Budy, Cenk, Gabi, Luk, Pierre, Sharon, Fabien , Udo, Christian, Alfred, Harry, Torsten & of course all of the Two Fish Divers Lembeh team as well – well done guys the amount of trash collected was pretty amazing!!!! Some of the more unusual finds were a roll of linoleum, game console controllers & one complete dinner set!!!!!!!!
Today 22th of April is the international DIVE FOR EARTH DAY!!
As divers we do care about ocean protection, so to contribute Two Fish Bunaken organize a underwater clean up.
After having done a briefing providing an explanation of how to recover the trash, as well as what should be recovered and what should be left behind, the dive took place this afternoon in Bunaken village pier. We arranged the buddy teams and both staff and guest jumped into the water with a mesh sack ready to began our search for debris and trash. After one hour underwater working together for a common good we all came up with full sacks. However it was to late for some of the rubbish found underwater at it was already part of the reef!!
Tomorrow we will report our event data to Proyect Aware
Thank you for celebrating the ocean planet with us!!
