Good news: today there was no mud at all! The bad news is that neither did we see rocks or corals or sharks (of any colour) nor any other type of marine animal. At least it was all for a good cause, since the Ranger stayed berthed to welcome some distinguished visitors: in the morning Ms. Teresa Catelani, EU Monitor for the European Commission, paid us a visit and in the afternoon it was Mr. Karmenu Vella, European Commissioner for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. It was a great opportunity for Lasse and Ricardo to explain how we work and show some of the images and samples gathered during the dives carried out so far during this campaign. Both seemed pretty interested and I´m positive when I say I really think they had a good impression of the work done by Oceana, so, mission accomplished!! Tomorrow we´re going for more mud!
