BCSS Featured in Oceanographic Magazine Article

BCSS has been featured in an article on Oceanographic Magazine’s website, written by our underwater photographer Helen Walne. Helen visited BCSS and our sister property Kisawa Sanctuary last year, taking in all the beauty that Benguerra Island and the wider Bazaruto Archipelago have to offer as she joined BCSS’s expeditions.  

Kisawa and BCSS have a unique relationship. A few kilometres apart on Benguerra Island – with its tangled indigenous forest, pristine white-sand beaches and coral reefs – their symbiosis places the natural world at centre stage.

Helen’s keen eye for the underwater world’s beauty has been able to encapsulate the unparalleled biodiversity of the archipelago’s reefs through her photography. Bright colours and countless textures play with the sunrays beaming through the shallows. It was a pleasure hosting her on our expeditions, and we are incredibly grateful to be provided with the stunning imagery, featured in the Oceanographic Magazine article.

BCSS is equipped with cutting-edge technology, a highly skilled team of marine experts, and the ability to serve as a platform for researchers and scientists from across the globe.
