POSTED: 03/2/12 3:14 PM

St. Maarten – The Scuba Shop donated a SeaLife underwater camera to the St. Maarten Nature Foundation Thursday. The camera will be used to document the foundation’s activities at the Man of War Shoal Marine Park and other areas in the waters surrounding St. Maarten.

“Many thanks to Kim and her staff at the Scuba Shop for donating the camera; it comes at the right time since our old camera has just about had it and we are increasing our monitoring activities which includes taking underwater pictures and film within the Marine Park and surrounding areas,” Manager at the St. Maarten Nature Foundation Tadzio Bervoets stated in a release.

Later he’d add, “We have also been trying to use a new type of coral reef research in which we monitor the health of our coral reefs over time using a computer program and digital pictures, and now with this generous donation of an underwater camera we can launch this new project and better manage our Marine Resources.”

    I have just been admitted for msc. fisheries at the university of Lagos and beginning to enjoy the program. It will be appreciated if we could enjoy some kind of twinning with your organisation to boost our knowledge. is this possible? Is it also possible to get some fishing gears for our department?
