Photo-gallery of New Caladonia - Huon Reef

Begin November 2003 we leave the Banks and Torres Islands in the north of Vanuatu and head for Australia. On our way is  Huon Eiland, the most norhterly reef of New Caladonia, where in that period of the year in night time the 'green' sea turtles come to the shore to lay their eggs. On the day  Huon Island is the realm of the 'Bubby's' and other birds. We meet a conservation team from New Caladonia that does research on the 'green'  turtles and can tell us a lot about their behaviour. In night time we also accompany the team members on several of their 'patrouilles'.
