"Moodhu Madharusaa" - Ocean School

"Moodhu Madharusa" - Ocean School, an initiative by Manta Trust in association with Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve Office has kicked off today in Eydhafushi with 64 students from Baa Atoll Education Centre taking part. 
 
The Marine Education Programme includes practical classes linked to each module, taking students out into the ocean to get up-close and personal with the world beneath the waves.
 
During theory lessons, Manta Trust staff together with staff from Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve Office will give presentations and run interactive learning activities for students in the classroom. As part of the programme the students so far have learnt about marine ecology and coral reefs, completed a beach cleanup of the isalnd, and explored their islands reef, some for the very first time! 
 
The main highlight of "Moodhu Madharusaa" will be the snorkelling trip to Hanifaru Bay to be upclose with the manta rays.
 
“Moodhu Madharusa” a program organized by Manta Trust in association with Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve Office in Baa Atoll will have a different venue next year as it is the aim of the program to hold the event on each inhabited island every year working with the island school.
