Scuba diving with Mola Mola

Have you ever been #scuba #diving with Mola Mola? These Ocean Sunfish are the heaviest bony fish in the world and can measure 3 metres in length and 4 metres from tip to tip.

Now you can take a virtual dive with them via Google Oceans: https://www.google.com/maps/views/u/0/view/streetview/oceans/mola-mola-crystal-bay-nusa-penida-indonesia/ImMXBDE1VjoAAAQo8A3muA?gl=us&heading=334&pitch=78&fovy=75

Tongoa Wall

#Scuba diving along Tongoa Wall in #Vanuatu with the SVII-S, on expedition with TBA21 Academy.

Cyclone Pam passed right over Tongoa, causing massive destruction on land, but the coral reef communities underwater were left reasonably unscathed.

Tongoa Reef

In March 2015 Cyclone Pam hit #Vanuatu causing massive damage, flattening trees and most of the buildings. However it is a different story beneath the waves - we found pristine   #coral reefs at Tongoa, with no real sign of bad coral damage, even though the cyclone passed straight overhead.

We're currently on expedition with TBA21 Academy, exploring the underwater ecosystems of Vanuatu http://catlinseaviewsurvey.com/surveys/south-pacific/vanuatu

SS Antilla

The Antilla #shipwreck is one of the largest wrecks in the #Caribbean region, it rests in 18m of water off the north-western shores of #Aruba in Malmok Bay. The wreck is covered in soft corals and tube sponges and provides habitat for countless marine creatures.

Million Dollar Point

During WWII, Santo in #Vanuatu was the largest U.S. base outside of Honolulu in the Pacific. When the war ended, the US forces based in Santo had no need for the tremendous amount of equipment they had, so they rid themselves of it by dumping it in the sea. And so, Million Dollar Point was created.

It is now a popular site for snorkelers & scuba divers. We are surveying the area with the SVII-S whilst on expedition with TBA21 Academy.

Fale Bommie, American Samoa

Its true name is “Fale Bommie” (in honour of Fale Tuilagi who discovered it), but "Big Momma" is the nickname local divers have given this huge Porites coral, which may well be the largest coral on the planet.

Go for a 360° virtual dive: https://www.google.com/maps/views/u/0/view/streetview/oceans/big-momma-american-samoa/tW9y0aUihEkAAAQo8A3lOg?gl=us&heading=42&pitch=96&fovy=56

Story
Tagline
The XL Catlin Seaview Survey is a global science and communication project - recording and revealing our rapidly changing oceans.
Introduction

The world’s reefs are in a dramatic state of decline - we’ve lost over 40% of corals over the last 50 years due to pollution, destructive fishing and climate change. According to the scientific community the decline is set to continue, it will affect 500 million people globally who rely on coral reefs for food, tourism income and coastal protection.

In response to this issue, the XL Catlin Seaview Survey is creating a baseline record of the world’s coral reefs, in high-resolution 360-degree panoramic vision. It will enable change to be clearly monitored over time and will help scientists, policy makers and the public at large to see and understand the issues reefs are facing and work out what needs to be done to best protect coral reefs now and into the future.

More from the project can be seen at http://catlinseaviewsurvey.com/
