Fakarava, French Polynesia

Apr 21, 2019 - National Geographic Orion

Today we visited Fakarava, second largest of the Tuamotu atolls, and one that will surely remain a highlight of our voyage for many. Touring the village and getting a feel for its culture was fantastic, but the wildlife of this stunning atoll was much too beautiful not to be shared here!

A self confessed “animal nerd,” Chris falls under many titles: marine biologist, marine interpreter, dive master, science communicator, and naturalist. Chris was lucky enough to grow up on the East Coast of Australia, where there are no shortage of different coastal environments to explore. While growing up, his friends would be surfing while he would be under the waves, snorkel and mask on looking for fish and all the weird and wonderful creatures he couldn’t get enough of. This love of the ocean lead to him completing a Bachelor of Science in 2005.
