Documenting Underwater Field Work in Ta’u

Apr 26, 2021Lifestyle, Travel

Just wanted to share some photos from back in March, when I went to the Manu’a islands to document marine sanctuary field work for education and outreach.

This was from day 1 of our field work. The science team conducted reef monitoring surveys within the marine sanctuary area at Ta’u; counting fish species and checking coral health. Ian and I snorkeled above them, trying to capture photos and videos of their work to create new outreach materials. Luckily, the visibility was pretty good too. I definitely felt very lucky to be able to do this for work!
