Reef Restoration Programme

The Gili Islands are the second largest Biorock® site in the world, currently home to 63 Biorock® structures and have hosted International Reef Restoration Training Workshops.

Divers can learn about coral biology and environmental threats, be trained how to coral garden, survey, conserve, maintain the Biorock® and finally design, weld and submerge their own Biorock® structure through a variety of eco courses:

  • Introduction to reef gardening – learn how to identify broken live corals and give them a second chance of survival.
  • Dive Against Debris – clean up rubbish from the reefs and deliver the findings to Project Aware.
  • PADI Biorock® Speciality course – learn about Biorock® and help build and sink a new structure.
  • Reef Check – learn how to ID fish, inverts, corals and substrates in order to identify the health of a reef.
