Moosa Mohamed, Expedition & Community Leader, Maldives

Moosa Mohamed worked for ORP from 2021 to 2022 as a Sea Turtle Biologist and later as an Expedition and Community Leader.

Born and raised in the Maldives, Moosa decided early on to dedicate several years to thoroughly explore his country above and below the sea. As a result of his explorations, he developed a deep respect and admiration for the greater Maldives that lay beyond the shores of its tiny coral islands. 

Moosa has spent the better part of his adult life working in and around the water, collecting data for conservation projects to help reduce the human impact on his beloved reefs and marine fauna. This work has allowed him to feed his curiosity for the vast variety of life that thrives on the reefs across the country and gain an extensive knowledge of local waters and marine life. 

His work in research and conservation includes several expeditions to remote parts of the Maldives. His local knowledge has helped several teams of researchers better navigate and understand the Maldivian reef ecosystem, including the Olive Ridley Project.
