Gorgeous science in the atoll of Fakarava
Scientists from Kahi Kai, Aldine Aimel and Eric Rottinger, visited our home in August 2016 in Fakarava, to make a collaboration with many local people, sharing knowledge, and collecting live specimens to photograph in the ocean, lagoon, and aboard the Vaa Motu sailing canoe. Kahi Kai creates stunning photographs of tiny marine animals, magnifying and sharing their often overlooked unique personalities and living textures. As Aldine says, “People enjoy our images, they want to look at them and understand… and what they can understand they can learn to protect” What a beautiful vision for this successful scientific outreach project!
