Wild Borneo Expeditions Nov 2014

The second group this month of international school students from WBE visiting our Gaya Island Dive Centre in Tunku Abdul Rahman marine park for our 1-day snorkel safari program to learn about our tropical marine environment!

The 50-strong group of students and their supervisors explored the biodiversity of Sabah’s marine environment through their snorkelling activity, of which our team of PADI professional guides conduct 2 sessions, and at different snorkelling sites too!

For the first session, the group learns a few simple skills, such as clearing water from the snorkel and mask, so they can adjust their equipment for their own comfort before they start swimming and whilst snorkelling!

For all sessions, one of our experienced PADI professionals delivers a briefing on boat safety procedures and the coral and fish species likely to be spotted at that reef!
Our young adventurers’ are encouraged to contribute their goodwill efforts to marine conservation by assisting their professional guides in collecting any marine debris they find floating on the surface or on the shallow reef when skin diving.

Our commitment to the Project AWARE Foundation movement includes raising awareness about the marine environment and educating the next generation of marine enthusiasts on the benefits of marine conservation!

After lunch Richard rallied the troops & conducted a mass beach clean giving a valuable educational talk on the issues of marine debris.
It was a whole day of fun for both parties of international school students and our island staff team, and we’re looking forward to their next visit to learn more about Sabah!
