24 May 2006: Fact of the Day – Executive Director Phil Renaud

Executive Director, Phil Renaud, comments on the Farasan Islands Marine Protected Area.

Executive Director Phil Renaud: “Over six long months of persistent effort was required to plan this Farasan Islands Marine Protected Area research project. I always say that ‘there are a lot of moving parts’ to these expeditions. However, when the time finally arrived to embark the Golden Shadow and begin our work, it was astonishing to realize how fast time flies once the expedition begins. We set sail from Jeddah 24 days ago and it seems like it was just yesterday. We are all very fortunate to have played a part in this incredible project.”
