Everyone likes to scuba dive or snorkel in warm, clear water on a vibrant coral reef, yet many people know little about what they're seeing or the importance of reef ecosystems. The Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course helps you appreciate the complexity of these habitats and teaches you how you can help conserve these vital systems.
Anyone who has an interest in the aquatic world can take this course. There are no prerequisites or age restrictions and no water sessions are required to earn this non-diving certification.
Through classroom discussions, you learn:
- How coral reefs function and the complex nature of life on a reef.
- Why coral reefs are so important.
- Why many coral reefs are in serious trouble.
- What you can do to prevent further decline.
- How the PADI AWARE Foundation unites divers and water enthusiasts to make a difference.
By completing this course you will also be one step closer to achieving the covenant title of Master Scuba Diver and joining the elite group of divers.
As soon as you sign up (added the course to your cart and payment cleared) with Phoenix Divers to do your Coral Reef Conservation course, you will receive an email with the learning information you need.
The Coral Reef Conservation course references information in the digital manual - AWARE - Our World, Our Water - downloadable for free on the PADI Aware Foundation website. Although this manual is not required for the course, you can read the chapter on coral reefs in preparation for meeting with your instructor.
Your Phoenix Divers Instructor will contact you about scheduling time for practical training.
