Students on a swahili beach safari
Updated: May 27, 2022
On Saturday May 14th we were visited by 40 talented students from Perani Secondary and Lunga Lunga Secondary school. These local students in their graduation year are enrolled in an access program to further develop their talents and extend their opportunities. They participated in an interactive presentation by Peter about coral reef restoration and gained more knowledge about the importance of coral reefs. During the beach safari that followed the students discovered a lot of different marine life hiding in the low tide rock pools. Guided by a bingo-card with photos they found pebble crabs, hermit crabs, sea cucumbers, juvenile fish and more. Students who ticked all the animals on the card were rewarded with a virtual dive. Through a few VR-headsets they observed the different phases of coral reef restoration in a 360º underwater environment.
