I will be away for the next 8 days. I am going here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fernandina_Island



Once again, I will be diving with the Ecological Monitoring team, performing macroinvertebrate surveys (I'm not sure if I mentioned that already). I can't believe my luck really.

This part of the achipelago is amazing (Punta Vicente Roca, The Bolivar Channel), and difficult to get to unless you go on an expensive cruise. Fernandina and Isabela are the youngest islands and they also have a great deal of volcanic activity. The waters there are cold and full of nutrients (Cromwell Current). They support a mass of marine life.

The penguin and flightless cormorant colonies exist in this part of the archipelago, and you are almost guaranteed of seeing these guys:




This place is a scientists playground.


SHEM HOTEP.

How long are you there?

Do you get some form of qualification after the experience?

In total, 6 months, then I have another 2 months in the continent.

I am unsure what sort of qualification you have envisaged. You can do a Scientific Diver course, for example, but you lose the qualification unless you do a ridiculous number of scientific dives in a year.

The majority of the scientists here, are Dive Masters, something that I will eventually do.

If you are talking about general qualifications then no. I am not doing a thesis here. I get a certificate, proof that I have volunteered here and performed certain tasks. It's all unimportant to me though, because I have learnt a great many things.

Funny you say this considering you are Micronesian and your homeland is a remote island.

during the macroinvertebrate surveys, between an 60 and 70 minutes. We survey three sites each day.


did you grow some sweet ass facial hair to fit the lifestyle?

not sure if the term "sweet ass" really defines my facial growth. My beard is a work in progress. Pictures will come later.


how are you on the internet?

because my work building has internet lol. I'll be disconnected for the next 8 days though.


i have diarrhea for life no joke, lol, and somebody made the joke i might have drank from the wrong stream in the galapagos and im not quite sure what it means but yea, be safe out there

cheers.

Default I noticed I had spelt "quadrat", "quadrant", probs coz the Spanish word is cuadrante.

The Monitoring trip was crazy.

During the trip, I dived to 45m and suffered (it was actually rather pleasant) a bout of nitrogen narcossis, which is inevitable when you dive below 30m.

We saw Manta Rays 3m across, Mola molas, whales, seahorses, penguins, and flightless cormorants, to name a few. During one of the dives, there was an Orca in the area but we didn't see it. The people in the zodiacs told us about it later. It couldn't have been more than 30m metres away, in only 8m of water.

Probably the most insane thing that happened, occurred on the final day. We were finishing off the shallow water transect at a tourist site called Cousins Rocks. There were two divers, me and another guy, in more or less the same position along the transect line. This large (man size) male Sea Lion had been circling us for some time, which was unsettling, although at the time I didn't think too much of it. So, while I was recording the last part of my data, I was watching the other diver, who was facing the rock wall recording information from a quadrat. I then noticed the Sea Lion, about 4m above and 15m behind him in the water column. All of a sudden, it swam directly at him and bite down hard on his metal dive tank. There was an audible "ping" sound in the water. I think, after it had bitten metal, it was deterred and left us alone, but in reality, that guy is extremely fucking lucky he didn't get a head injury.

When he turned around after the attack he didn't even know what had happened. We got the fuck out of the water after that. It's ironic that we fear sharks so much when I have never hard a hint of a problem with them here, whereas, "cute" friendly Sea Lions are actually not so cute and not friendly at all.

SHEM HETEP.

Rice, and an aweful lot of it.

Actually, the food on the islands is not so good aside from the seafood. There are delicious ceviches, encebollados, marimotos, langosta/langostino a la plancha, generally with a healthy serve of patacones.
