Coral Watch Chart - Coral Health Monitoring Course
This one-day course is taught by Marine Biologist Andrew Taylor at Blue Corner Dive.
Students learn about the role of corals in tropical reef habitats, and the effects of climate change and human impacts on coral reefs. We then identify of coral forms and learn to recognize coral bleaching.
Students must have a minimum certification of Advanced Open Water to enroll in the 2 week program, but it only takes five days to complete both the PADI Open Water and Advanced courses. During the 2 weeks students will complete the Biorock® Specialty course as well as gaining further knowledge and experience in reef survey techniques and coral gardening. At the end of this program students will work together to create their own Biorock®. This program is tailored to you allowing you, it allows you to chose the time frame and the PADI courses you want to do.
