Dive Desk Joins Reef Check Maldives Network
Dive Desk is delighted to join Reef Check Worldwide in partnership with the environmental non-profit organization Gemana, to train our passionate divers to become citizen scientist volunteers to survey the health of our tropical coral reefs. The program involves becoming Eco-Diver Certified to undertake Reef Check Surveys and collect data for key indicator species critical to save our reefs and oceans. It empowers people to create a sustainable future through education, research and conservation. The data collected from these dives help researchers to improve the way natural resources are managed.
“You would never look at a reef the same way again after being reef check certified. It completely changed the way I interacted with the reef.”
For anyone with a passion for marine science, the Reef Check Eco Diver course gives a great introduction to scientific research in the field.
We encourage all the PADI professionals we train and our divers to connect their passion for ocean adventure with a purpose for marine conservation.
