Pta Gruesa and Pez Maya EMs arrive on base

Another phase has started at our Mexican marine bases. 

On Friday morning, after a long night of airport pick ups, and meeting and greetings, our staff met our newly arrived EMs.

After a brief explanation of what was to come during the first few days, the 1st group departed to the lands of Mahahual. 5-hours later, 24 new faces arrived at Pta Gruesa, our bit of paradise in southern Yucatan...

The 2nd group departed shortly after, but this time heading to the land where the sky is born (Sian Ka'an). This is where Pez Maya is based and where 22 avid EMs live with 8 members of staff.

No need to say that all EMs were wowed by the natural beauty of both bases, and the prospect of calling them home for the next 5 or 10 weeks. We look forward to passing on all our knowledge, passion and love for these ecosystems in order to continue with the protection and conservation of the Mexican Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System.
