Bori and his wife, Jill, have been making annual trips to Bonaire, a small island in the Caribbean for fifteen years. Bonaire is surrounded by a healthy coral reef. This reef attracts a bounty of fish life and other marine invertebrates. Both Bori and Jill video what they experience underwater.

The videos are exceptional and Bori's explanation of what we are watching is educational and entertaining. Bori spent four decades devoted to Marine Science. He has been widely published in a number of professional journals on a variety of subjects dealing with marine behavioral ecology.
