Just me and my anemone friends!
I just cannot pass on photographing a colorful clown in a beautiful anemone... and, this one certainly fit the bill! It's as though the shrimp were just the perfectly matched accessories to this stunning anemone.
But, this was only our 2nd dive of the trip and it did foreshadow something we saw more of - anemone bleaching and coral bleaching. In this photo, you can see a white tentacle behind the clown (on the right). And, we saw more of this. There were a few spots that have been hit by the seas that are just too warm; I still have hope that this can change but it's a sad sight to see in such pristine waters.
The vanishing Vaquita!
Did you know that this is the most endangered marine mammal, with less than 30 in the wild? ------------------------------------------
Please read my latest article summarizing the latest scientific strategies to save the Vaquita! (Link in my bio). Comment below and let me know what you think! #savethevaquita

We're celebrating Reef Week in Grenada! With the Grenada Fund for Conservation and other partners, we're teaching students and community members about the importance of coral reefs and why we need to protect them - and having lots of fun along the way! Here, students are drawing a mural showing the many types of marine species that rely on reefs for habitat. #reefweek#grenada#reef#coral#marinelife#marineconservation#caribbean#naturecaribbean
