News from the Beach



-Well we are getting into winter season here on the lake so temperatures are dropping. I actually had to but a sweater on last night. It's was 20 degrees! That's roughly 70 degrees for my American friends. So really we are not hurting that much!

-The Maru and Aquanuts Divers are excited about our new research assistant and dive instructor Tim. A geologist with experience doing dive research in Central America we look forward to the skills he can bring to our research efforts here on the lake.

-At the Maru we are also busy analyzing the data from our underwater population and biodiversity surveys and with the help of a local Peace Corps volunteer, Nick, hope to get something published from it once we hit our three year anniversary of data collection at our two survey sites around Kande Island. Stay tuned as we will be publishing a blog version of the article here in the following weeks.
We'd also like to take the opportunity to make an early welcome to the two new interns who will be joining us in July, Sarah and Danielle. We look forward to welcoming them to Malawi and introducing them to the amazing biodiversity of lake.

-Finally Joy's Place we are happy to report that Joy's Place in Mzuzu has been moving from strength to strength. For all those who have supported us, we'd like to give a big THANK YOU and let those of you who haven't visited us know that you will shortly be able to book us through Airbnb and hostelworld.com or just as easy shoot us an email at joyinmzuzu@gmail.com.
