Manta Rays, Whale Sharks and Turtles
When I was talking to Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort marine biologist Lynn Kessler last week, she described the sites around the resort as “crazy good” for spotting manta rays. Lynn does a lot of underwater data collection on manta rays, whale sharks and turtles. Marine conservation journalists interested in visiting Maldives and writing about Lynn’s work should contact me.
On World Oceans Day, 8 June, Outrigger launched 11 weeks of marine conservation activities at all its flagship resorts. From beach clean ups, to manta ray presentations and fish house building, there’s a big range of activities ongoing. Details here. Is there an editorial angle there you’d like to develop?
