Hoga Island 2018-In the midst of the Coral Triangle

The expedition…

I spent two weeks on Hoga island, a small research base run by Operation Wallacea in the middle of the Wakatobi Marine Park in Indonesia, a region of very high coral reef density. During the first week, I gained my PADI Open Water qualification and during the second week I entered onto a Reef Survey Technique course where we learnt how to determine reef health and conduct transect based surveys underwater. The trip was incredible, and I could not recommend visiting this part of the World enough. The sheer biodiversity of the sub-surface world was stunning, the local people were an absolute pleasure to be around and I met some amazing, like-minded people from all corners of the World. Thanks to the GoAbroad scheme for supporting my trip.
