Having been facinated by a coral nursery while we were diving with Michael Sherratt early last year, we have been in touch with Dr. Craig Dahlgren who explained us with enthusiasm the mechanism of the coral nurseries. We had the chance to participate to one of his expedition at Sandy Cay’s reserve in the Abacos and offer our diving experience to help them to install 3x nurseries
Again this year, BEP Foundation has been pleased to assist Friends of The Environment saving baby turtles. Early August this year, members of the network at FRIENDS saved some of the eggs and recreated a nest in a bin full of sand. Nearly all of the eggs hatched two weeks later and just under 40 hatchlings were realeased on their natal beach so they could find their way
