Zavòra beach
Only 2 days left. Leaving in Thursday.
A única coisa boa e bonita queolugar tem, é a praia. de resto,uma miséria franciscana... As casas não tem qualquer conforto, útensílios de cozinha a conta gotas. A limpeza nas casas é muito mal feita. Não há condições de arejamento no interior das casas. Na verdade,parecem mais é cabanas. E o local em si, muito mal conservado. É um roubo ovalor que cobram para nos oferecer condições péssimas. Foi a única vez que fui e não regresso...

A beautiful loggerhead turtle feasting on macroalgae that grows on the Rio Sainas Wreck. Marine Action Research has collected data on fish biodiversity, abundance, and substrate since the wreck sunk in 2013. This will help to understand the functions of wrecks as artificial reefs. Very cool dive site
Blotched fantail rays are benthic stingrays found in the indopacific region. They are listed as vulnerable on the IUCN as populations are decreasing from fisheries bycatch. We were lucky to see 3 on a cleaning station on Deans the other day!
Mating octopus, thank you Zavora Lodge
Mantas usually steal the show at Witches Hat, but there's lots of other amazing life on this reef, like turtles, and mating octopuses :-)

Zavora Lodge is a Mozambique tropical gem that offers budget-friendly accommodation and camping facilities on the beachfront with panoramic views. Its dive center, restaurant and entertainment facilities makes it the perfect holiday destination.

You can’t do everything, but you can always do something!
Today we took 1 hour out of our day to clean a small stretch of our beach. We were able to collect a ridiculous amount of rubbish in that time, and although there’s still a lot of ground to cover, we are so proud of what we accomplished today ♻️🌍🌊
Thank you to @zavora_lodge for always lending a helping hand and supporting everything that we do 💙🌀

Manta populations in Mozambique are declining at an alarming rate. Fishing and foreign development is on the rise. While we are still lucky to get a seasonal aggregation of manta rays in fairly high numbers, we worry that the pressure from these anthropogenic impacts is going to have a serious negative effect on manta rays and many other important species in the region.
We are currently identifying critical habitats in Zavora that are important for manta rays and other elasmobranch species, and teaming up with @marinemegafauna to try to solve the many manta mysteries in the Inhambane province. By collating our information we will be able to better understand movement patterns of our manta rays, and highlight the key areas that need protection.
Manta ‘season’ typically runs from July-November (coinciding beautifully with humpback whale season)
Interested in joining us ⁉️
. Our June- Sept months are almost full!! You don’t have to be a scientist to join our team. If you love diving and are passionate about marine conservation, we welcome all ocean warriors!

Marine Action Research 2020 Internship 🐳

Want to be a part of our awesome team? We are looking for aspiring biologists and passionate conservationists to assist us in our 2020 projects.
Next year will have a strong focus on our manta ray project as we try to solve Mozambique’s manta mysteries and protect this severely threatened population.
Along with our manta research, our other projects include humpback whale surveys, nudibranch taxonomy and ecology, predatory fish research, wreck colonization, and seahorse monitoring.
Interns will get experience in all of our projects (although humpback whales are seasonal), while diving in one of the most incredible, yet fragile regions in Southern Africa. By interning with us you are contributing to critical research in the area and helping us to provide the information needed to protect Mozambique’s threatened species and habitats. Come join us! 💙🦈🐠🐋🌊💙

An eventful morning here in Zavora! At 4:30am a leatherback turtle came to nest on our beach. Head chef, Basilio, from Závora Lodge Mozambique and Závora Divers was able to watch the nesting event and take this photo of her returning to the sea. We were then called to the scene to help secure the nest from poachers. We have built a barricade, made signs, and hired a local night guard to watch the nest until they hatch.
We haven’t had a nesting event here in years, despite regular night patrols and attempts to work with the local fishermen. This is a positive sign that there are still turtles coming back to these beaches (sea turtles always return to the same beach to nest from which they hatched). The important thing now is to make sure the eggs are safe.
Leatherback turtles are CRITICALLY endangered here in the Southwest Indian Ocean where they are thought to have

Amazing 4am this beautiful leatherback turtle decided to lay her eggs infront of the lodge!

change.org 1195 signatures are still needed! Stop Seismic Testing by SASOL in Mozambique

Andrea Marshall

I am on my knees. I need your help and I need it now. I don't ask for much from those that follow me but I do need your help today.

SASOL, an oil and gas company from South Africa, has announced plans to conduct seismic testing and drilling on the northern boarder of our treasured Bazaruto Archipelago National Park in southern Mozambique. I have been researching marine megafauna off this coastline with Marine Megafauna Foundation: Western Indian Ocean for the last 17 years. As a regional expert, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this area of the coast represents a global hotspot for some of our most iconic and endangered marine species, including humpback whales, whale sharks, manta rays, bull sharks, sea turtles, hammerheads, marlin, guitarfish, and dolphin. The Bazaruto Seascape is also home to the LAST viable population of dugongs on the African continent. This region is the blue heart of coastal east Africa. It is not a coincidence that I have made my home along this coastline and my husband Janneman Conradie and I plan to dedicate the rest our lives to safeguarding this region from exploitation.

I cannot express to you how profoundly important it is for us to stand up against dangerous, extractive, industrialized projects in this particular region of Africa. In addition to it being a critically important area for threatened marine megafauna, this coastline may well represent one of the most biodiverse coastlines left in the Western Indian Ocean. It is an epicenter for marine tourism in a country that is desperately trying to develop a more sustainable blue economy around tourism. There are hundreds of coastal communities that depend on the ocean here for jobs and food security. We can predict some of the effects of this project, but sadly the the widespread and long-term damage that a project like this could have on this coastline can scarcely be imagined.

The community here is gearing up for the fight of our lives and while many NGOs, including African Parks, are standing shoulder to shoulder with us... we face a mighty opponent who doesn't play fair or by the rules. We urge the government to carefully consider what is at stake and take an extreme precautionary approach to the the development of projects like this along the Inhambane Coastline. Globally we are fighting to protect more of our world's oceans and pristine environments, not jeopardize the ones we already have.

It would mean so much to me if you would take 30 seconds of your time today to sign this online petition below. Please share it as well if you can.

Manta Trust

WATCH TO THE END! Check out this incredibly rare footage of mating reef manta rays filmed yesterday in the Maldives. We often record a peak in courtship behaviour around this time in the Maldives but to catch them in the act is very rare.

The female manta in this clip is Tini (MV-MA-3345) who was first recorded in Ari Atoll back in 2014. Since then, she has been sighted 14 times across Ari and North Male Atolls, with her most recent sightings coming at the end of 2018.

Manta rays reach sexual maturity at around 10-15 years old with females only reproducing every 2-3 years in most places but it can be as infrequent as every 7 years. After just over a year gestation period, the female gives birth to a single fully independent pup!

The Maldivian Manta Ray Project - Manta Trust will be keeping an eye out for Tini over the coming year, tracking how her pregnancy goes, and fingers crossed there should be another little manta pup flapping around out there by Christmas next year!

Save the ocean.....

One man's trash is another man's [art] treasure. An update on our mural: we are using pieces of plastic that we have collected on the beach during our clean ups to make a beautiful mosaic. We invited some of the local school children to work on this project with us and were able to make some amazing progress yesterday! The purpose of this project is to reuse pieces of plastic that would otherwise be affecting the environment while also raising awareness about a 'plastic ocean' that is all too common nowadays, with some fun and creativity! Watch this space for the next update on this! Thanks to @zavora_lodge for hosting us 💙 @ Závora, Inhambane, Mozambique
