One Day ecoDives

ecoDives

Learn about our marine conservation projects and participate in two ecoDives with a conservation instructor.

During an academic session, your conservation instructor will introduce you to our incredible local reef ecology, teaching you the important roles of different species from whale sharks and turtles to coral and reef fish, down to the species we can’t even see. You’ll understand how important balance is to the ecosystem and be introduced to the projects we run to monitor and maintain this balance.

On your two ecoDives you’ll practise identifying signs of health and stress on the reef, identifying species, and how coral nurseries rehabilitate corals naturally or accidentally broken on the reef.
