This year (2014) marks the 10th anniversary of the annual Clownfish Release conducted by Dr Thon and his team of marine scientists and supported by Pimalai Resort & Spa and Scubafish PADI 5 Star Dive Centre.
This year The Clownfish Release is on Saturday 22nd March 2014 and Scubafish are delighted to be supporting ‘The Clownfish Release Project 2014,’ organised by Pimalai Resort and Spa.
The event will be held at the beautiful islands of Ko Haa. It will be slightly different this year, as the Clownfish are going to be released at Ko Haa Lagoon and unlike previous years, they will be released into shallower waters. They will be released at a depth of 5 metres to allow participants who are non-divers to view all of the action.
Scubafish are proud to be hosting a Shark Guardian presentation and awareness event tomorrow evening at their Headquarters in Kantiang Bay.
Shark Guardian will present their shark and marine presentation at Scubafish Ko Lanta, Thailand, on Sunday 2nd March at 19:30. Learn about sharks, their importance, different species, threats and conservation efforts. Updates on Spot the Leopard Shark – Thailand and Thailand eShark with simple ways for all to get involved in protecting our most precious species.
We at Scubafish, have been in contact with fellow divers at Thresher Shark Divers, who are based in the Philippines. We have learnt from them, people who are actually there, more about the disaster and how we can help, and get others to do the same.
