Gaya Island Resort’s Resident Marine Biologist Scott Mayback encourages the growth of coral colonies and the rescue and rehabilitation of turtles
GAYA ISLAND RESORT’S RESIDENT MARINE BIOLOGIST SCOTT MAYBACK ENCOURAGES THE GROWTH OF CORAL COLONIES AS WELL AS THE RESCUE AND REHABILITATION OF TURTLES.
Gaya Island Resort’s Marine Centre is located on the quiet shores of Tavajun Bay, which is a five- minute boat ride away from the resort. Bearded pigs wander by nonchalantly and small monkeys occasionally scramble down from treetops searching for snacks, but the relative peace of Gaya Island Resort’s private beach could be disrupted at any moment.
Mayback, the resort’s Resident Marine Biologist, might receive a call for assistance from the local Wildlife Department, the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park or a scuba diving company that has chanced upon a sea creature in need of serious help. Here, Mayback speaks about his work at Gaya Island Resort and the various essential ways in which the resort helps to protect the marine environment that surrounds it.
