Exploring a Coral Reef – Michael Wooley

On Thursday evening Michael Wooley, a local swimming teacher and lifeguard as well as an accomplished visual artist, presented his recent underwater photographs taken on a scuba diving trip to the second largest barrier reef in the world off the coast of Belize.

A crowd of approximately 30 people attended the event and were mesmerized by the slideshow of beautiful photographs (taken by Michael) projected onto the library’s big screen.

Michael spoke about the rich ecosystem of the coral reef and provided the names of numerous fish, corals, plants, and animals that he encountered during his undersea adventure.

Afterwards, everyone enjoyed refreshments while asking Michael questions about his trip and the incredible artwork that he creates (on display for the event)!
