Reached the Marine Ecology Research Center (MERC) at Gayana eco Resort.. The staff guided us to a room for an introduction for the whole tour.
It's a small theater.. only 3 of us conquered the place..
By watching the video.. I get to know some history about our own Marine creatures.. What are MERC plans to protect them and some awareness.. it's an eye opener for me..
The video was about 10-15 minutes..
Next we were guided to another room..
Called MERC display room... I have been here.. even Martha Stewart recently visited here.. Kamu ada?? ;-p ;-p
Showing some of the underwater creatures.. My camera doesn't give a nice capture here... Siapa yang ada DSLR tu maybe boleh lah.. ~.@
Hello Nemo.. ^_^
1 kind of Coral..
Few species of the giant clam produced by the MERC..
I must be imagining thing... Macam lain2 ja ni.. ;-p..
Wait till you see in real life... amazing..
Err.. I got goosebumps when looking at this.. geli.. ;-p
Ha!! Mr. Urchin... ^_^ (1 of the species I guess).
(Sorry lah.. mcm 'temberang' tu muka di sini.. ~.@.. LOL). This are the biggest clam ever found here in KK/Sabah.. Sudah lupus.. tinggal the shell buat kenangan.. -_-.
But MERC are still doing lot's of projects to produce more giant clams in future (Some successful samples.. all the clams picture above).
Lastly.. picture of the sea creatures..
Next will be close and personal with the sea creatures.. outside the room... ^_^
