Our marine biologists actively collaborate with one of the most important research project in the Maldives: The Olive Ridley Project.
The Olive Ridley Project aims to study the marine turtles using a simple technique, by snapping a picture. The photo identification allow the researchers to study the migratory habits as well as the health status of each individual. Marine turtles have an individual pattern which works like our fingerprints. Ask our marine biologists on how to be involved and snap a picture of your encounter with the marine turtles!
In addition, the project is focused on the reduction of the extremely dangerous “ghost net”. If you never heard about it click on this link and check the web site of the project, or ask our marine biologists on the island!
