It's been another great month here in Sosua on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic! The diving has been super, great friends have been back to visit and I've had the opportunity to talk at 2 schools about our ecosystem and the need to take care of it for the future.
The International School was kind enough to let me speak to the Grade Six class! It was great! Very intelligent and enthusiastic young minds and wow - they asked great questions!
Later last month I had an opportunity to speak to an adult group at IIC Spanish School. It was great to see so many Dominicans concerned about the environment, the ocean, and the future. We even had a few local divers show up and take in the lecture!
On a continuing great note, there are lectures scheduled back in the campo and also at the Mariposa Foundation! Great to see the momentum starting to build!
Lots of hope for the future!
The diving has been very good; visibility remains fine! Been focusing on the "little things". Working with a 60mm macro lens and a diopter to bring out the detail in eth really small stuff! The little blennies in the photos above are about 3/4 of 1 inch long and only about 3/16 of an inch across the head! These little guys may be my new favorite friend in the ocean!
Have a great summer, enjoy this beautiful country and please tae care of our ecosystem.
