In a constant movement, I slowly kick my fins up and down. I breath regularly through my snorkel and with my hands on my back and face down, pretend that I am flying. I observe a wide variety of coral reef, passing by underneath me as I slowly proceed through the warm and clear tropical waters of the Carribean sea in the Marine protected area of Glover’s reef.
As this part of world’s second largest reef is protected, many fish swim around and are curious to investigate the weird one with the snorkel, fins and mask. This colourful Parrotfish, easily to recognise by its bright colours and its perfectly aligned teeth, swims up to greet me before disappearing the in the blue again. The Parrotfish is of vital importance for the health of the reef, as it nibbles seeweed off the precious corals. With the Parrotfish nibbling the coral, I slowly make my way back to the island, to continue our Robinson experience.
