A last minute purchase

The instructors were chatting about the impact that we have on Sampela (home of the Bajau community where we will be staying) and we would like to request that a few of you purchase sunscreen that is not toxic to corals (traditional sunscreen is poisonous to coral) and hopefully are willing to share with those who are unable to buy it in time. Several varieties are available with free tw0-day shipping with Amazon prime, but be sure to read the reviews to ensure that the product actually is reef-safe.

One product that is big enough to share: https://www.amazon.com/Coral-Safe-Biodegradable-Sunscreen-Snorkeling/dp/B01DFKI0J4/ref=sr_1_6_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1505093235&sr=8-6&keywords=reef+friendly+sunscreen

We apologize for the late notice, and if you are unable to get it, do not stress. Rash guards are our primary mode of protection.

Thank you!
