Every year, millions of animals undertake epic migrations, sometimes to seek warmer weather, or to find better feeding grounds, or to come together to mate. Of all these great journeys, those that take place at sea are often among the most spectacular, especially for divers. Here we take a look at six of the world’s most fascinating marine migrations.[sdlslider ids=”11979,11956,11953,11952,11955,13460″]
Originally from England, I first learned to dive so that I could go cage diving with great whites off Guadalupe Island, Mexico, in 2008. From that first shark encounter onwards, I have been utterly hooked on the underwater world, and particularly on the issue of shark conservation. Whilst studying for my degree in London, I worked at London Aquarium, before going to Mozambique to research whale sharks off Tofo. I completed my PADI Instructor’s course while living in South Africa, and spent nine months teaching and guiding on Aliwal Shoal, where I set up a tiger shark ID project and began writing for the conservation organisation Shark Angels. After a seven month trip teaching around South East Asia, I'm heading back to Africa to explore the incredible dive sites of Tanzania.
