Coral Reef Restoration Project 1

What’s better than scuba diving? How about taking part in a coral reef restoration project! What’s even better than that? How about when elementary school children are helping and learning about conservation and saving our ocean!

Dive #11 was a 25-minute adventure documenting coral collection at 6 meters. Preparatory work had already been done over the weekend. 

Before this dive, the elementary school students were briefed by a marine biologist. Afterward, they had lunch on the boat. Then, after lunch, they snorkeled above and observed as we went back down to plant the corals.

The project would have been awesome enough by itself. Experiencing the excitement of the young children made this easily my best dive so far.
