FIELD SITE

At the moment, most field work is done in Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea. Here we work with a local NGO, Mahonia Na Dari (Guardian of the Sea) Research and Conservation Centre. They offer marine and environmental education to local high school and college students and support the community in managing marine protected areas.
