February 4. Sean Eckley - Volunteer Diving Program at the California Science Center. Sean Eckley is a Dive Safety Officer at the California Science Center. He is currently recruiting new dive volunteers to help maintain exhibits and provide care for aquatic animals. They have a 188,000 gallon Kelp Forest Exhibit featuring over 45 different species of fish, as well as live kelp growth. In order for them to maintain their exhibits and promote conservation and knowledge about our oceans, they have a dedicated team of volunteer divers that come in throughout the week to help clean, feed, and give daily dive show presentations to guests about the amazing animals we have off our coastline.

March 3. David Wilson - Kungkungan Bay Resort. David Wilson will be sharing photos of the resort and a variety of fish, octopus, nudibranchs, squid and other invertebrates, many of which are not common on the typical coral reefs. When most divers hear “muck diving”, they think of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia. The original dive operation in the Lembeh Strait is Kungkungan Bay Resort. KBR is located in the northern part of Sulawesi Island. The nearest major airport is Manado and most visitors fly into Manado from Singapore. On muck dives, there are many weird-looking invertebrates, critters that look like they came to us from outer space. https://kungkungan.com/

April 7. Peter Landecker - Diving in the Philippines. In October 2019, Peter dove two areas in the Philippines that he had never visited before: Dumaguete and Anileo. Dumaguete has an abundance of seahorses and frogfish. Anileo is known for super-macro and blackwater diving. Peter immersed himself for 71 hours underwater on 57 dives. He will share images he captured while on this adventure. Checkout http://tinyurl.com/pblandecker for more information about Peter.
