Safari Lodge Divers,Nananu-I-Ra, Fiji are pleased to announce the start of their CORALWATCH monitoring surveys this weekend.
CORALWATCH is an organisation built on a research project at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. Coralwatch uses the coral health chart as a cheap, simple,non-invasive method for the monitoring of coral bleaching,and an assessment of coral health. In the field, users simply compare colours of corals with colours on the chart and record the matching colour codes. The coral health chart can be used while diving, snorkelling or reef walking.
Organiser, Michelle Allen is incorporating the CORALWATCH surveys into Safari's diving and snorkelling programmes to encourage visitors of Fiji to conserve the underwater environment through education, advocacy and action.
