Scubafish are excited to be supporting ‘The Clownfish Release Project 2013,’ organised by Pimalai Resort and Spa. The event will be held on the 30th March 2013 at Ko Haa and will be the 9th year that the project has taken place.
The Clownfish Release Project is generously funded by Khun Anurat Tiyaphorn, the owner of Pimalai Resort and Spa. The research is headed by Dr. Thorn Thamrongnawasawat, Head of the Department of Marine Sciences at Kasetsart University and his team of marine scientists, and is supported by the Thai Department of Fisheries.
We are delighted that Project AWARE have chosen to feature Scubafish’s turtle-saving day in their latest campaign against marine debris. Pervasive debris kills wildlife, destroys habitats, and threatens our health and economy. Found in even the most remote ocean places, once underwater, debris can remain for generations.
Heading back from a day’s diving at Ko Haa, a small group of Scubafish divers were lucky enough to be able to rescue a group of Olive Ridley Turtles who had been badly entangled in a discarded fishing net.
We had just finished a beautiful day out diving at Ko Haa and were on our way back to Ko Lanta on MV Moskito, when our Captain spotted something unusual floating on the surface of the sea approximately 1km south-west of Ko Haa.
Throughout the month of April 2012 more than one billion people around the globe will participate in Earth Day 2012 and help Mobilize the Earth™. People of all nationalities and backgrounds will voice their appreciation for the planet and demand its protection. Together we will stand united for a sustainable future and call upon individuals, organizations, and governments to do their part.
The Clownfish and Seahorse Release Video 2012 was filmed on 30th March 2012. Dr. Thon and his team of 10 marine scientists from Kasetsart University were joined by 30 volunteers and participants onboard Scubafish Dive Boats. They headed out to Ko Haa to release 200 western clownfish and 50 seahorses at Island #1 at Ko Haa.
Scubafish are delighted to be supporting Pimalai’s 8th Clownfish Release Project event on 2nd April 2012 at Ko Haa. This year, Dr. Thon Thamrongnawasawat and his team of marine scientists, plan to release 200 Western Clownfish and are extending their project to include 50 Seahorses to release at Island #1 and #6 at popular local dive site, Ko Haa.
On Sunday 24th April, 2011 at 10:00, Kim McMenemy (an instructor here at Scubafish), will scuba dive a half-marathon (13.1 miles) in the White Rock Resort Pool (Ko Lanta, Thailand), stopping merely to swap scuba tanks and remain hydrated. Kim seeks to raise important funds and is asking you to help by making a donation…
