I have not been back to the Maldives for over a year. It feels like a home now, and you can imagine, i couldn't wait to get back home. I was very keen to find out if the underwater world had time to recover from the severe bleaching 3 years ago.
This time we could the adidas runners to the far Southern atolls.
It was a very enthusiastic group with lots of passion and ideas. We dived, snorkelled, surfed, ran, cleaned beaches, explored, discussed, inspired, engaged in science, paddled and looked into the future.
It was hard for me to see the sate of the coral reefs, very little recovery, and increased damage. Even more in start realising, but once we pushed past a certain point, we might not get it back. A reminder that now is the time to make all the necessary changed, everywhere !!!
