Projects in the Mergui Archipelago

Timeline of our work in Myanmar

October 2015

Season 2015-2016

We make a leap to the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar and take over Operations of the Mergui Archipelago Biodiversity Research. During the Season of 2015/2016 we visit more than 20 islands of the Archipelago, establish valuable relationships in the area and document well over 400 different terrestrial and marine species – more than 10 of them endangered around the world, including one coral that is close to extinction but abundant in the Mergui Islands.

Season 2016-2017

The Season of 2016/2017 Sea Nomad remains anchored inside the Mergui Archipelago, something that has not been done before. This way a team of three had a window of several months to investigate Boulder Island in detail, creating reef maps and the first-ever Animal Guide Book for the Mergui Archipelago.

Season 2017-2018

In the latest season Project Manaia created a Research Base on Boulder Island, together with the “Boulder Bay Eco Resort” we have a team of two (Marine) Biologists permanently stationed on the remote island.
During this season we established the very first Coral Garden and Coral Nursery of Myanmar and possibly the entire Andaman Sea!
