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.
