Tufi to Samarai, soon to be Cairns

07 October 2009
Hello all!

This is Katherine, a new volunteer for OceansWatch (from New York), writing from Mamaki (NZ), as the Magic Roundabout team does not have internet access.

Chris and the team are about ready to leave Samarai, the very southern tip of New Guinea, making their way to Cairns, Australia. From there, most of the original crew will be departing and going their separate ways, and I will be joining Chris along with Irene (our science adviser) and two other volunteers who have yet to be chosen to do a promotional tour down the coast of Queensland. If any members will be in the area from Cairns to Brisbane during the month of November, contact us at info@oceanswatch.org, I'm sure we could really use your help!

Last but not least, if any members have a video projector that they wouldn't mind loaning us for the month so we can make presentations/show videos at yacht clubs, marinas, and schools on our promo tour, please contact us!
