Divers Helping Give New Life to Corals in Borneo

The day before some 50+ kids from the local orphanage were to visit our Dive Centre last weekend, Richard decided to get some help from the pleasure divers by requesting them to pick up any broken or damaged corals that they find on their dives.

Divers Helping Give New Life to Corals in Borneo

This is part of our Coral for Life program - where we explain and demonstrate how a broken and otherwise healthy coral can be given a new lease of life by gluing them on special blocks and then re-homing them to an artificial reef.

The day before that however, our divers collected and change the fortunes for some corals whose future looked bleak before this.

For the kids, they learned to care for the corals and why it is important to do so.
