We are loosing Nemo

Nemo
Nemo

Because we humans burn fossils so fast the CO2 level in the Oceans rise Anemones become acid and Nemo has problems to locate predators.
According to numerous studies, if ocean acidification continues at the current rate, clownfish could experience significant sensory impairment. Since clownfish rely on their auditory and olfactory capabilities to evade predators and locate appropriate habitats, there is much indication that ocean acidification will negatively affect their population numbers. Signs appearing here! 6 years ago we had many more anemones and Nemos here!
PLEASE reduce your carbon footprint!

Underwater Clean up days at Phi Phi Islands Poseidon Dive Center

A Video from our very successful 2 Clean up days at Phi Phi Islands! Project Abroad and Poseidon Dive Center joined forces and cleaned up almost 3000 kg of Rubbish. But it should not happen in the first place that so much rubbish lands in our precious Oceans! Please put your rubbish in a Bin not on the Street or the Ocean! Thanks to all the other Groups and Dive Centers who have joined!

Yellow Lipped Sea Krait

A Yellow lipped Seasnake is going up to the surface to get a couple of Breath and then comes back down because they don’t have gills! Yellow-lipped sea krait can go as deep as 100 meters underwater and stay there for up to one hour. Every 10–14 days yellow-lipped sea kraits come on land to digest their food, drink fresh water, to shed their skin or mate and lay their eggs. They lay around 5-13 eggs at a time.

Abondand Fish Cage illegally set way inside the Marine National Park Phi Phi Islands


Today we rescued about 60 starving Fish from dying in an abandoned Fish cage which was illegally set way inside the Marine National Park laying on Corals which were damaged as well! Fortunately we found it by chance cut it open and released the Fish!
It was so amazing when they were released it gave me big jiggle and it seemed like they said Thank you before they left!
A small Movie of it will follow soon!
When do People finally understand that a Reef is Millions of $$$ more worth alive then dead???

Green Turtle Rescue

The Project Abroad & Poseidon Dive Center rescued a young Green Turtle from drowning in an abandoned and drifting Net at Phi Phi Islands. Poor fishing practices are mostly the reason.
