As a travel and nature lover myself, it was a great opportunity for me to learn more about marine life from the professionals themselves. We had a fun and quality time snorkeling around the marine sanctuary to better understand the importance of the marine ecosystem and how we could help as humans by upholding one’s sense of responsibility towards nature.
