On June 25th 2010, a full page article in the Tico Times “Weekend” section with pictures and interviews. Go pick one up and check it out while the issue is still on the shelves.
Last Sunday was another beautiful dive on the artificial reef in Playa Hermosa. Harry, Christian, Thad and Genna went down to “CondoFish” for the weekly dive. On each of our dives, we have at least one specific task. Yesterday, we double checked our new buoys, the anchor points, and began our fish finding mission. We’re beginning to collect pictures of the various forms of life we encounter. The goal will be to add a section to the website with a profile of each fish, it’s picture and web links links to more information. This will not only be informative for our project but useful for anyone interested in the variety of creatures that reside in the Playa Hermosa bay in Costa Rica.
Unfortunately it was Harry’s last dive with us. He’s heading back to Canada. He was an experienced diver and an immense help with the project. Thanks Harry! We hope to see you next year.
Last Sunday, we found another sign of progress in the Artificial reef project. Seahorses have been spotted making their home in and around the wreck and the artificial reef structure. A delicate red seahorse was discovered beside one of our underwater structures. These fragile creatures are known to be extremely picky when choosing a place to breed and make a home. This is an excellent sign for the progress of the artificial reef project. We can’t wait to see what creatures wait for us on our next trip down.
