Already as a little kid, Kristina wanted to be a marine biologist. She did her masters at the University of Cape Town where she did her thesis on great white sharks, which are her absolute favourite. She also worked on a cage diving boat and volunteered with many conservation programs. After a quick stop as Entertainment Supervisor at a German Sea Life Center, she now protects and analyses the sea turtle population of the Lhaviyani Atoll.

If you have any sea turtle pictures from your stay in the Maldives, you are welcome to send them to the following address: marinecenter@prodivers.com. If Kristina can make out the pattern of scales on the head of the turtle, she will be able to tell you the turtle’s name!
