This data then goes into a worldwide database which gives a overall view of the health of the world’s coral reefs.
  • Marine Resource Management: The Marine Resource Management Program goes deeper into the ecology and biology of the coral reef ecosystem and uses a fantastic manual from the University of Queensland as its guide – Coral Reefs & Climate Change – which divers get as part of the program. Gain an introduction to the coral nurseries, Biorock technology and other reef restoration projects that need constant attention.
