Description

The reef of the Fakarava Atoll encloses a rich ecosystem designated by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. A team of international scientists have identified this reef as the location of a unique occurrence on the day of the June full moon when thousands of Camouflage Grouper come to spawn attracting 700 Grey Sharks. The team meticulously plans a study that includes night diving and multiple underwater camera placements. —ST
