Water Quality Analysis
Weekly, we measure metrics like temperature, salinity, pH, turbidity, nutrients, and dissolved oxygen in the water of our dive sites. This data enables is submitted to an island-wide database that helps to track changes over time and guide conservation efforts.
Coral Bleaching Surveys
Our team’s work supports CoralWatch, a citizen science program operated by the University of Queensland.
Using a colour-based coral health chart, divers and snorkelers can evaluate the health of corals across reefs, adding the information collected to this global database that maps the extent of coral bleaching and gives scientists incredibly valuable information about recovery trends, disease patterns, and an accurate depiction of areas most threatened by coral bleaching.
Debris Free Friday!
Come join our team each Friday at 5:45PM at Victor’s bar – right down on the beach from Roctopus HQ – for a sunset beach clean and free beer courtesy of RAID International!
All rubbish collected is recorded by our ecoTrust team and submitted to the Ocean Conservancy, which monitors global marine pollution.
Fouling Species Management
Ghost Net Removal
Ghost nets are one of the most dangerous physical threats to our reefs. Abandoned or lost at sea, these fishing nets drift onto the reefs and pinnacles, smothering marine life and coral.
Our team monitors for ghost nets and other marine pollution, and sends dive teams out to recover these physical threats as quickly as possible.
