A relatively quiet month of Eco on has concluded with a bang with a much needed Reef Check Survey of one of our ‘Adopt-a-Reef’ sites.

 

During the course students undertake detailed classroom lectures on organism ID and its role in the ecosystem before diving on local reefs to get first hand experience of some of the things discussed in class.

World Oceans Day is an opportunity every year to honour the world's ocean, celebrate the products the ocean provides such as seafood as well as marine life itself for aquariums, pets, and also a time to appreciate its own intrinsic value.

 

Here on Koh Tao we are surrounded by beautiful coral reefs that are intrinsic to all the activities that take place on this small island. We at Eco Koh Tao and Crystal Dive took this opportunity to remind people about this important symbiosis by organizing an afternoon of eco activities.
