The Fun Part
As a scuba diver, the health of aquatic ecosystems is often what attracts us to diving and if you become aware of the fragileness of coral reefs you can help to protect and preserve them.
What You Learn
The AWARE - Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course teaches you about the vital role that the coral reefs play in the marine environment. The course also familiarises you with the current state of the world's coral reefs and how you can help. You will learn about the Project AWARE Foundation and:
- How coral reefs function
- Why they are so important
- Why many reefs are in serious trouble
- What you can do to prevent further decline
Your Next Adventure
As you learn about coral reef conservation you may also want to work on a conservation project as part of your PADI National Geographic Diver certification.
Since fish life and coral reefs go hand in hand, it also makes sense to learn about fish identification with our the AWARE Fish ID course too.
You may also want to brush up on your underwater photography skills so that you can document and capture images of the conditions of the reefs and species you’re encountering.
