CoralWatch - Reef health monitoring transects

Blue Corner Dive instructor Andrew Taylor & scientific divemaster trainee Avri went out to two of our most popular divesites to set up baseline transects for an on-going reef health monitoring program.

 

Mangrove reef on Nusa Lembongan was surveyed at 2 depth contours 3-4m depth & 5-6m depth, using swimming line transects.  Reef health monitored as indicated by presence on bleaching using CoralWatch charts and techniques.
