Welcome to the Whale Shark and Oceanic Research Center blog!

We have been a little quite of late but things are set to change!  Conservation and research are on the move! We will be making a lot of great noise from now on so watch this space!  First off, WSORC would like to introduce Lucie, our new Director at the center.  Lucie is a conservation biologist from the UK with a great passion for conservation and the natural world, and she is no stranger to Utila either.  5 years ago Lucie was a volunteer at the Iguana Station, and since then has traveled around Latin America and the Caribbean, working for a whole host of conservation wildlife organisations and community development projects. Welcome Lucie!
