Life after Covid




I am sure we are all looking forward to the lifting of lockdown restrictions in June. We hope that with the production and roll out of the vaccine we can all begin to return to a normality within our lives.

This is great news but we must all remember that Covid 19 has taken its toll on everyone. No matter how rich or poor this pandemic knows no boundaries. It respects no class or wealth division. Whilst many in the west have indeed suffered at its hand we should spare a moment to contemplate on the plight of those unfortunate souls in countries that rely on tourism to keep them economically afloat. Many remote islands in Indonesia have no electricity or clean water. They rely on daily deliveries from the larger islands to keep their communities alive. When the people cannot come they suffer greater hardships than we can imagine. We hope and pray that we will soon be able to see these poor people get back on to the road of economic recovery and look forward to the day when we can smile with them again.

The Naturally Wild Company Adventures

“Sail with us to Paradise”

In 2022 we hope lead an entomological /arachnological orientated trip with excursions on to a number of islands including the most beautiful and remote islands of Raja Ampat where we will swim on stunning coral reefs and witness the stunning Birds of Paradise.

Wallaces Golden Wing Butterfly on Bachan Island

Golden Wing Caterpillar

Wallace’s Standard Wing Bird Of Paradise

We  will visit a number of remote islands and trek deep into rain forests in search of butterflies, beetles and bugs. Not forgetting of course the odd spider we hope to come across. We will snorkel in crystal clear waters and get up close and personal with some of the most amazing marine life on the planet. Snorkel with turtles and got up close with Manta rays and Whale Sharks. An adventure not to be missed. Visit Seatrek Sailing Adventures for more details or simply email me.
