➡️ Q as in QUANTITY
Marine reserves represent only about 3% of our oceans worldwide. Yet, they are essential to conservation especially nowadays but there are too few. Having dived all over the world, we have witnessed that underwater encounters are second to none in these protected areas. This school of hammerhead sharks was taken at Cocos Island in Costa Rica.

➡️ P as in POLYPS
Corals are marine invertebrates. They typically live in compact colonies of many identical individual polyps. Corals species include the important reef builders that inhabit tropical oceans. Alcyonacea, or soft corals, are an order of corals that do not produce calcium carbonate. They are sessile colonial cnidarians found throughout the oceans of the world, especially in the tropics and subtropics.

We can see the smile on your face looking at this picture!
Proboscis monkeys are endemic to Borneo’s rainforest. A highly arboreal species, they are also excellent swimmers. It is believed that the size of a male’s nose is meant to attract mates. Interesting, isn’t it? 😊

Tiger sharks are protected in The Islands of Tahiti just like all other species of sharks. Ocean conservation and sustainability have been a governmental priority since the early 2000s.
The destination needs to be on the bucket list of any diver!

Grey reef sharks predating at night. Sharks have been protected in French Polynesia since 2006 – the first country worldwide to do so.
Night dives are always quite surreal offering a special underwater atmosphere.

This Wobbegong commonly known as carpet shark found in the Western Pacific (Australia and Indonesia – this one in Raja Ampat)
It often lies still on the bottom waiting for a prey – usually at night – feeding on crabs, octopusses…
It is one of those fish which has mastered in the art of camouflage.
