It has been an active few weeks here at Cap Ternay. Surveys were completed for coral, fish and invertebrates from various sites surrounding base. Unfortunately it was the last week for some of our most beloved volunteers including the four weekers: Maya, Rolf, Melanie and Kais, and the twelve weekers: Fabienne, Billy, Lauren and Mary. They will be missed dearly for their surveying skills and all around fabulous presence here at Cap Ternay.

However, with every cloud there is a silver lining and the new arrivals provided that ingredient! An original group arrived on Saturday composed of ten volunteers from various places around the world. All have started settling in and have started their advanced open water. There will certainly be great things to come from this group!

On Monday our reliable Manta boat was not so reliable and needed to be repaired. Instead of diving everyone went for a snorkel where a White Tip Shark was seen. After the snorkel a game of volleyball was had by all, it was a very active day even without diving. Luckily on Tuesday we were all back in the water either surveying or working on our advanced open water. We are all looking forward to another week of diving and getting to know each other better.

Best wishes,
