✨ T R U M P ✨

is the name of this particular Maori Wrasse found on Moore Reef at Marine Land and I’m in Love 🥰 There are 2 males that share the territory around the pontoon, Trump and Wally, however Trump is the largest of the 2 and the most stunning looking fish I have ever seen!

Having never been to Moore Reef before… (pausing for the shock to pass) the reason for the shock is that Moore Reef is a High Value tourism site meaning majority of visitors (millions) to the Great Barrier Reef only visit Moore Reef. (The Whitsundays and also Norman Reef off of Cairns are up there too)

I was blown away about the coral coverage, especially considering only a few months ago 68% of the corals in the lagoon were suffering from heat stress and reacting by releasing their symbiotic algae from their skeletons leaving them pale and naked!! I was happy to see a full recovery of their top tier location!! Great Day with my fellow @citizensgbr #citizensgbr

Thanks to the team @gbrbiology @willsgilmore #masterreefguides Eric and Dustin for showing me around! @reefmagiccruises #reefmagiccruises

Special Thanks to my 4 Citizens Scientist Volunteers that helped collect valuable data on the day!
🐠 Lagoon Team @marisalueck & @pdreamer_05
🐟 Drift Snorkel Team @paigeyelizabeth & @timbooo84

All our amazing animal and coral finds will be loaded into @eyeonthereef and used to study the health of the corals @gbrmarinepark
