The marine conservation courses offer participants the opportunity to learn in-depth about marine ecology and the techniques used by reef managers around the world to manage and protect coral reef resources. After developing the knowledge, participants then practice those techniques underwater while simultaneously contributing to the conservation of the reefs around the island.
