News from the Beach!

-Well the windy season is here properly but we are having plenty of gaps in the gales so the diving and surveying is full-steam ahead.

-In the past month we have welcomed two new interns to the Maru, Bridget and Brianna, both from the USA and both mid-way through their university degrees.  Already they have made great contributions to our research programs.

-Our Environmental Education program is off to a great start. Most Malawians living on the lakeshore cannot swim.  We believe that it is difficult to enjoy and value something that you literally cannot enter for fear of drowning.  Rather than hitting the books we prefer to hit the water!

- Oh and here are couple more awesome cichlids courtesy of the British Cichlid Association's POTM!
