  1. Mo'orea, French Polynesia Bleaching first seen on the forereef in March of 2019 and has lasted to the present (as of May 16). Roughly >80% of corals affected.
  2. I thought this would be a good forum to start! As divers, I think it's important to be aware of how the marine environment is shifting and changing due to human impacts. Post here if you have recently been on a trip and seen coral bleaching. Be sure to answer where you were, what time of year, and how extensive the bleaching is.
  3. Hi Everyone!! I am new to underwater photography, but not new to the ocean. I recently graduated with a B.S. degree in Biology and will embark this year on several trips around the world as I dive into a several research projects. I focus on marine microbiology and coral reef ecology and virology. I am in the market for a new camera and I have no idea where to begin. Any help and advice is so appreciated. I have some grant money that I can use to buy a camera, but my max budget is around $1500. I am going to Tubbataha and Palau in two weeks for a dive trip, and need something that will help me photograph the reefs. I will also begin research on manta rays this year, and I will need something capable of taking sufficient ID shots of their bellies. I realize having a strobe would be helpful, but I don't think I can afford that right now. So far, I am looking at buying used gear, the Olympus TG-5 with housing and wide angle lens, and the Canon GX7ii with housing and wide angle lens. Thank you!
  4. Hi I'm Anna. I just graduated with my degree in Biology and will continue to study marine biology in graduate school. I love underwater photography, and am looking for helpful hints on shooting coral reefs, sharks, and manta rays. I am also in the market for a new camera! (That won't break my grant budget).
