Join ReefNet, Keri Wilk In Ambon & Raja Ampat This December
By Jason Heller, September 5, 2009 @ 11:14 AM (EST)
ReefNet and New World Publications (Paul Humann & Ned DeLoach) are collaborating on the production of digital field guides for marine life in various regions of the world. Having already well documented the flora and fauna of the Caribbean, ReefNet has now shifted its focus to the Indo-Pacific.

Underwater AmbonTo gather new content, ReefNet is launching a series of documentation expeditions open to the public (all previous expeditions have been limited to ReefNet staff). Not only will participants get to enjoy the beauty of Ambon and Raja Ampat, they will also have the opportunity to contribute photos/videos to upcoming field guides.

This December you can join DivePhotoGuide contributor Keri Wilk on an 18-day expedition to Ambon and Raja Ampat. It starts with eight days of muck diving in Ambon with Maluku Divers. Recently a new species of frogfish was discovered by Maluku Divers, proving the region's reputation for biodiversity.

Underwater Raja AmpatTransferring by air to Sorong, the expedition continues on the spacious and photo-friendly Archipelago Adventurer II will then take you on a nine day trek through the undisputed heart of marine biodiversity: Raja Ampat. Ironically a DPG Expedition will also be in the area simultaneously, which was sold out over a year ago. The ReefNet expedition provides another opportunity to visit these vibrant reefs, including those on which Dr. Gerald Allen made his record-setting fish counts...up to 284 species on a single dive.

You may elect to join just one part of the expedition, but it was designed for the two itineraries to complement one another.

For more information contact ReefNet directly – and tell them you heard about it on DivePhotoGuide!
