“Today we changed the mindset of 13 Divemasters and 4 Instructors and I know they will be AWARE for the rest of their lives,” said Jens Nielsen Ban’s PADI Staff instructor.  It was a memorable day for Jens and fellow instructor Simon from Ban's Diving Resort, Koh Tao, Thailand who taught their first AWARE Shark Conservation course.

One afternoon on the island of Koh Tao, a poor boat captain watched as his vessel filled with rubbish. Over five hours, ten volunteer divers removed a record amount of trash from one reef.

Some months earlier, in a bid to protect a shallow reef at Hin Ngam, local dive schools and the Save Koh Tao Group installed a ‘No Boat’ Zoning Line. But after the monsoon season New Heaven divers were astonished to find an 80 metre stretch of line covered in bags, ropes, and marine debris.

A new project started in Pattaya - Mooring Bouy Deployment

Because of the lack of mooring buoys, the diving boats are throwing the anchors directly on the corals. It will soon destroy the best dive sites in our area. The local authorities don't do anything about it.

Because of that we did start this project. More information can be found on http://www.pattayadivers.com/2011/11/15/divers-helping-reefs/

If you are a AWARE and can afford to help, it will be well appriciated.

Building and construction of the addition to our artificial reef at Twins has been a huge project and seems like an endless month in the making. The time has come to bless and deploy our hard work.

 

Crystal Dive & Eco Koh Tao have built a ship specifically to receive coral transplants from our coral nurseries so getting our structure in the water is only half the work. Underwater we need to arrange the ‘ship’ and then transplant our budding coral colonies.
