AWARE upcoming Events


The upcoming events for the next couple of weeks to keep Koh Tao CLEAN and to support Project AWARE:

Crown of Thorns collection. The Juvenile Crown of Thorns starfish feed mostly on coral-line algae but around six months of age, they start feeding on corals. They showe a preference for branched corals. Crown of Thorns are a important element of the coral reef because they are part of that ecosystem. However if there are to many it's bad for the coral reef and they can actually hurt the ecosystem by damaging corals. In assistance of the local Save Koh Tao community Sunshine Divers will create a date to collect and remove the Crown of Thorns at divesites where there are to many. A great way for DMT's to attend on this Eco Activity. More information soon and date to be confirmed.
