Ann Benwick

Nationality: Filipino

Residence: Manila, Philippines

Ann is a lover of nature and finds her peace in the water. The sea and the underwater world calms her and keeps her sanity in tact. Having been fortunate enough to live an hour and forty five minutes away from from the birthplace of Philippine scuba (Anilao, Batangas), she tries to take that opportunity to see the other side of the world on a weekly basis.

Ann loves to travel a lot whether its a long drive or by air, and have had the privilege to dive in several parts of the Philippines like Balicasag and Panglao Islands of Bohol, Malapascua of Cebu, El Nido and Puerto Princesa of Palawan, Boracay Island all in the early parts of her diving years and Pandan and Apo Reef of Mindoro, Dauin and Apo Island of Dumaguete in the latter.

Ann is now starting her venture in exploring the underwater world outside of her country with upcoming scheduled trips in Bali, Indonesia for the Mola Mola Season, Sipadan Island, Layang Layang and Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia. Palau and Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi in Indonesia. She is so much looking forward to all those trips ahead.

She started underwater photography just a couple of months ago and she knows in her heart that she could never ever go down without it again. Although she has been a certified diver for 11 years now on and off, Ann is very grateful to technology as it is easy for her to retain memories of where she went, what she has seen and when she had seen it because of her new rig unlike in the early parts of her diving venture when all these are not as high tech as it is now.

Ann is very glad to have joined this pool. She is very fascinated at how thousands of species of Nudibranch are there scattered around the world and is hoping so much to see all of them. She is very thankful to the administration of Nudipixel.net for encouraging her to post more nudibranch of different species which serves as an inspiration in every dive she makes. She applauds and would like to acknowledge the administrators and contributors of the site who so diligently set aside time to share what they have seen for all of us to learn and make this site an effective site for nudi identification.
