We have just come back from one of our field trip at beautiful Lady Elliot Island, although the weather conditions made this trip pretty extreme, we had a very good time and are delighted to have met seven new Earthwatch volunteers, Adele, Lea-Anne, Aki, Laura, Corrinne, Brad and Sophie. Your help was invaluable during this trip, and we got so much work done. Also a big thank you to Richard, the Earthwatch coordinator who always add this little bit of extra fun and support.
Lady Elliot Island is a coral cay located at the southern tip of Australia's World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef. Situated within a highly protected ’Green Zone’ the island is a sanctuary for over 1,200 species of marine life and is known for its abundance of manta rays, turtles, amazing array of spectacular marine life and unspoilt coral reef.
