Expedition Background

I have been exploring the biological diversity of Banderas Bay, Mexico for over 15 years. So far my efforts have focused on land. I have published my work as an easy-to-use printed field guide and as a publicly accessible web application This is so far the only such source of information on local nature.

However only a part of the story has been told. That is why this year I am expanding Viva Natura explorations to the sea.

Time and time again, in conversation with both locals and visitors, I find how little general public knows about the biological richness of the bay. Ocean, being even less accessible than the steep mountain sides covered with tropical forest, continues to be a mystery to most. From the shallow shore reefs to exposed oceanic islets at the mouth of the bay, I intend to bring images that will inspire curiosity, awe and pride at the vast diversity of local life. One of my ambitions is to bring photos and video from a deep sea canyon plunging into several thousand feet below the surface quite close to the shore.

Ultimately, after I have gathered enough material, I would like to offer the public a tool similar to my Viva Natura field guide and open the door for everyone to explore and learn more about the local sea.

Another thing worth mentioning is that while it is replica watches uk unclear just how many hardcore watch-lovers Hublot will keep on attracting to its corner, replica watches sale it is easier to guess when it comes to the affluent people who feel an attachment to one of the many sports, partner companies, or replica watches uk ambassadors in Hublot's stable.
