Manatees And Diving: A Busy Week In Caye  Caulker

This week we welcome four new volunteers to the project. Two of them were here to work on our Manatee Conservation Programme and two came for the Marine Conservation and Diving. This means that we spent a lot of time in the water, and a lot of time on the boat.

For The Love Of Fish 

When I was a young boy of six years or so, I remember my father teaching me for the first time how to tie a hook to a line.  I remember baiting the hook with a bit of sweet corn and tossing a weighted line into a cold mountain stream, high in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.

I have been in Caye Caulker for 3 months now and I had the opportunity to encounter numerous amazing creatures already. From the quiet nurse sharks, the curious stingrays, the shy turtles or even playful dolphins, every animal has its own behaviour and reacts differently to human presence.

Fore Reef  Dives

This week we had a wonderful opportunity to dive on the deep section of the barrier reef next to Caye Caulker, it gets pretty choppy once you get past the reef out to the open ocean and our little boat can only handle so many huge waves so we have to go when the weather is calm.

Time  Flies

The thing with volunteering is, that it feels like you have just arrived but at the same time it feels like you have been at this place forever, which is a strange and beautiful feeling.
