Our guests, a group of snorkelers from USA, were in a very good mood as earlier that day they had encountered a group of 10 manta rays looping right under them for as long as 40 minutes, posing for their cameras, completely ignoring their presence.
The snorkelers were enthusiastically talking about the event, sharing GoPro footage and photos.
Once dinner was served our group of snorkelers had finally time to sit back and listen to Tova’s speech. Tova’s presentation took our guests through the history and achievements of the Micronesian Shark Foundation, emphasized the importance of educating kids on shark conservation issues and finally introduced Tova’s current project, the very ambitious undertaking to protect Oceanic Sharks around Palau.
People were so impressed by Tova’s past and present conservation efforts, they interrupted her speech several times with applause.
The presentation ended around 8:00 pm, our guests stayed around for more drinks, talked to Tova and enjoyed each others company.
Tova invited them to take home Coloring Books for Adults to remember the Micronesian Shark Foundation by, a gesture highly appreciated by our guests.
