This week we have an update straight from the project, from one of our volunteers, Ben:
Another week has flown by! It is hard to believe that the 4 week volunteers are almost finishing their time here at Pez Maya.
We have witnessed a great deal of diversity in the area this week. Incidentals sightings have included a baby Hawksbill Turtle, a Loggerhead Turtle, Spotted Eagle Rays, an Electric Ray and more crocodiles. We also excavated a turtle nest and counted a whopping 118 hatched eggs!!! Also, 3 Least Tern Chicks were spotted during our daily bird watches. Following a lecture on shark species and behaviours this week, we are all keeping our eyes open for the first shark sighting of the phase.
It was another beautiful week at Pez May! With the exception of a quick thunderstorm on Wednesday, our daily schedule has been packed full of dives giving volunteers ample time to study the reef. The volunteers continued their Emergency First Responder training by reviewing the skills we learned last week. We're all nervously awaiting the spontaneous practical session that the stuff speak of.
