Hi Pom Pom Lovers!

We have a limited space left in our resort in June, July and August - don't miss it! Pom Pom Island Resort is known for its clear blue water, breath-taking sunsets and completely pedestrian way of life - travel around the tiny island by foot, bicycle or kayak. Moreover, the sea turtle nesting season is about [...]

A big thank to Tom and Rein Unger for adopting Pom Pom Corals!

On 24th July, the conservation team got new coral gardeners, Tom and Rein! Despite their age, the 2 divers planted with me and Jussry a lot of coral on our artificial reefs, located in Mandarin house-reef at a depth of 12 meters. We started with a short briefing on the dive site and coral [...]

A HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR NEST SPONSORS FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE!

This month has been particularly busy here in Pom Pom… The reproductive season for green and hawksbill turtles finally started, and we relocated several nests. Turtle nest relocation is a good conservation strategy and, accordingly to several scientific studies, the relocation can be used to alleviate nests of extreme abiotic conditions to increase hatch [...]

Reef rangers against plastic

.....and here we go again! To keep our house reef and beach clean and healthy, our reef rangers remove all the garbage around Pom Pom. During the last few weeks, a lot of garbage floated around Pom Pom Islands. Nobody knows exactly where it comes from but the first thought is it comes from [...]

Not every story about marine animals caught in fishing gear ends this beautifully, so it’s important to recognize when one does.
