Hello fellow Wetpixelers, During the effort to fully catalog over 5 years of underwater filming on an almost daily basis I have been finding some "Hidden Gems" that I had forgotten about due to the pressure to turn things around for the next day. I am only half way through the phenomenal number of tapes but to break up the monotony of viewing, extraction, key-wording etc I have put together a short show reel which uses a minute fraction of what I have found so far. Clips chosen mainly for how they flow into each other. So I thought I would share it with you. Footage shot between Jan 2008 and Jan 2010. Cheers Richard
West Manggarai and Komodo district, Indonesia has designated its entire marine and coastal waters as a manta ray and shark sanctuary. The district Governor announced last Saturday that fishing is now prohibited for manta rays, sharks, and other threatened species including turtles and Napoleon wrasse, throughout the district’s 7,000km2 waters that extend up to 12 nautical miles offshore. The fantastic achievement is the culmination of efforts by the local government and local dive centers working together to achieve positive impacts on the environment, communities and economy.
