With over 70% of the World’s coral reefs and over 2000 marine species under threat, there is no better time to gain a better understanding of marine conservation, the challenges faced, and what we can do to make a difference. This program, delivered in partnership with Reefwatch, is aimed at restoring and rehabilitating coral reefs in the Andamans. We’ll visit mangroves to learn how these are essential to marine life and biodiversity in the region and in protecting us against natural disasters. We will also work with local communities to understand their perspective on how they strike the balance between their livelihoods and conservation.
This program offers an optional PADI Open Water SCUBA diving course and those who are certified as divers can expect to do some research dives as part of the conservation work.
Those opting for the PADI Open Water SCUBA Diving Course need to complete the theory before the trip.
