GOBIES . . .

As more people are discovering, Ningaloo Reef in northern Western Australia, is a World Heritage site and a diver’s wonderland.  It’s also a good news story, because the 260 km-long reef is in great shape.  Because it’s in an arid zone, there’s no run-off from agriculture, so no Crown-of-Thorns Starfish problem.  Ningaloo has also been spared the catastrophic bleaching events that are attributed to decimating corals around our country.
So there’s plenty to be thankful for in this part of the world. Ningaloo supports a vibrant eco-tourism  . . .


Honiara, the capital of the Solomon Islands, overlooks a picturesque body of water known as Ironbottom Sound. Located between Guadalcanal, Savo Island and Florida Island, this deep stretch of water was once called Savo Sound, but was renamed Ironbottom Sound after the massive loss of ships and planes in the area during World War II. While most of these ships and planes disappeared into deep water, enough sank at divable depths to make Honiara a wreck divers heaven.
Before the war Honiara didn’t exist . . .


The smallest fish in the sea is a Goby. Most are smaller than your finger. They make up more than one third of fish in tropical reefs.
Gobies under constant threat.
Millions of fearsome predators love to eat gobies.
How do Gobies even survive against these incredible odds? They are very clever little fish and always have their wits about them.
I will look at their lifestyles and marvel at their ability, not only to overcome incredible predatory pressures and many violent storms but also to thrive and proliferate. . .
