Billy and Taylor on The Hilma Hooker
Cirillo's photographs document how Lionfish, without any natural predators, continue to invade reefs from Bonaire in the Caribbean to Destin in the Gulf of Mexico and how divers ban together to stomp out these harmful species.
Cirillo demonstrates to divers how to use a nonsensitve bottom to make adjustments and avoid damaging fragile coral reefs and delicate underwater environments.
A banded moray eel dines on a small octopus in a shallow tidal pool in Bonaire.
Streamlining gear and securing dangling gauges helps protect reefs from damage caused by careless divers.
The protected marine sanctuary surrounding Bonaire and the culture of preservation on the island has preserved reefs and garnered international praise.
Maintaining and practicing good buoyancy helps divers avoid personal injuries and protects coral reefs from unnecessary and very harmful damage.
The Hilma Hooker shipwreck, several years after her sinking, has began showing signs of healthy coral and marine growth.
