In the meantime back home in Australia ... the hard work on saving marine turtles never stops.
The Green Turtle Ella (up to the left), was released back to the wild. Almost 3 years ago Ella was coming into our Turtle Hospital, with almost no chance to make it.
We grew to over 200 dedicated volunteers in recent years, and all the hard work is paying off. Ella is back to Flynn Reef, with a tracker on the back. I worked for years as a dive instructor on this particular dive site, and it's a turtle heaven. Ella high-fived me, swam a couple of circles, then said good bye, The Great Barrier Reef was calling ! The best moment for every wildlife conservationist!
Just when El Nino is impacting Coral Reef around the globe, i was lucky to be hired for a commercial promo Shot and the SEASIM Australian Institute of Marine Science in Townsville.
I never knew so much research is done to get a better understanding of the impacts on the Ocean Ecosystem. Experts are working round the clock to simulate all the possible impacts our Oceans and Coral Reef are facing. Only through understanding we may have a chance to take the right steps. Coral Reefs have survived to this day, and we need to make sure they will survive us!
