Biorock 2008

Biorock 2008

In 2008, the local community of Koh Tao took the first, but very large, steps towards making marine conservation a priority for our island. Along with the Save Koh Tao Group, seventeen local dive schools and a number of local businesses donated and raised almost 1 million Baht to build a Biorock™ alternative dive site on the island. Becoming the largest Biorock in the Gulf of Thailand, and the world’s first Biorock SCUBA diver training area. This new site utilizes low voltage electrical energy to stimulate coral growth and will provide an interesting and attractive training area for new SCUBA divers before they go out to the natural reefs.
