Next month, guests at Halaveli will have the opportunity to dive or snorkel with world famous marine biologist and reef conservationist Robin Aiello.
Robin will be visiting Halaveli from 3-31 March. Well known for her studies into marine animal adaptations and ecology, Harvard graduate and environmental management consultant Robin spends at least 8-10 months of the year on or in the ocean, between working on expedition ships in the arctic and Antarctic, and leading dive trips in the tropics.
Her previous expeditions have included diving with a wide variety of sharks – including Great Whites – to document their behaviour, living underwater for two weeks in a saturation chamber to study coral biology and observing jellyfish under an ice-shelf in Antarctica.
As part of her visit to Halaveli, Robin will run weekly events in order to share her expertise with our guests.
Events will include:
- accompanied dive
- accompanied snorkel
- kids snorkel trip
- presentation with slides
- private dive or snorkel trips on request.
Robin’s visit coincides with our own reefscaping programme at Halaveli in which we are stimulating regrowth in the coral around the lagoon damaged by the tsunami of 2004.
During Robin’s trip to Halaveli, we’ll be posting regular updates, photos from under the ocean and more.
