Releasing Nemo, a VolunTeaming Project
Coral reefs, an important resource in Southeast Asia, are being threatened by the increase in tourism. Since these coral reefs host marine life, many clownfish, or anemone fish, are becoming endangered by humans. Many people are catching the fish to keep as pets but do not have an understanding that by doing so, they are putting them into danger and decreasing their lifespan. In an effort to educate their guests on these issues and on the natural environment that surrounds the property, Phulay Bay is offering an activity called “Releasing Nemo”.
This VolunTeaming experience will be a day of water activities in Phi Phi Island consisting of inclusive training on clownfish species, symbiotic living with anemones and the threat to their reproduction system, as well as underwater photography guideline and training on protecting of reef and underwater environment. Guests will receive a t-shirt of Green Fins, training material and disposable underwater cameras the night before and a Reserve picnic lunch to enjoy on the boat ride back from Phi Phi Island.
