Congratulations to both Bas and Kelly for completing their PADI Open Water Course with Lou at Eco Divers Lembeh Cottages. They are both in North Sulawesi, Indonesia volunteering their time at Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Centre. They head back to Holland later this week to continue their studies. We all wish them well and safe diving. In fact Kelly is already planning her next diving adventure with her sister in the Red Sea, Egypt!

Here you can see Bas Baudewijns and Kelly van Gils with their instructor Louise Kraechter (centre) after their last dive of the course.

Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Centre is one of the several wildlife rescue centres and wildlife transfer stations originally set up by the Gibbon Foundation to care for the ever increasing influx of confiscated, illegally kept and traded wildlife within Indonesia. The Tasikoki centre has been established in a strategic location to tackle the cross-border trade from Indonesia towards the Philippines and onwards to China, Taiwan and Japan. Guests staying at Eco Divers Lembeh Cottages can take a morning tour to Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Centre as it is located just 20 minutes drive from the Cottages.
