Douglas & the Dugong: the making of a Cover Story

| No TrackBacks
Read Luke's truly moving article on the positive affect Dyson the Dugong had on top American marine journalist, Douglas D Seifert, and how Luke, Douglas and their top contacts are hoping to bring change to protect this magical creature.

Douglas & Dugong; the Making of a Cover Story
by Luke Atkinson, Marsa Alam Dive Centre Manager

It all started with a Bintang. Gary Ball, the previous manager of Emperor Divers Marsa Alam had been talking to a photojournalist over a glass of the local beer in Lembeh Cottages, Indonesia, who had been struggling to photograph dugongs in the wild. Gary knew of my own particular struggles with the local specimens of Marsa Alam, and also the fact that I had managed to learn enough about the whereabouts and habits of one individual that I had created a PADI Speciality all about him. He put us in touch. 5,000 emails and one revolution later, it was on – Douglas D Seifert, veteran American columnist from Dive magazine was coming over, and I had absolutely no idea what to expect.
