Virtual Reef Walks

UMI Reef Rangers went out for the first official reef walk of 2020 on June the 5th. Due to COVID this was just a training exercise for future reef walks that include classes of school children. 

As well as training this gave us an oppertunity to collect images to build a virtual reef walk and footage to create a promotional video.

Afuso Jr Highschool Outreach

Core members of the University Marine Initiative visited Afuso Jr Highschool in Onna-son to teach marine ecology and ocean conservation.

Afuso Jr Highschool is situated right in front of the beautiful Afuso beach so we decided to take the lesson outside.

The connection between these students and their ocean ecosystems was extremely encouraging and is in no doubt partly down to their accessibility to such a beautiful and well maintained beach.
