AWARE Coral Conservation Course

The AWARE Coral Reef Conservation Course

The AWARE Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course is designed for any ocean enthusiast, whether you scuba dive or not!

The Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course helps you appreciate the complexity of the colourful, beautiful coral habitats that you see when you go snorkelling or scuba diving.
The course teaches you how you can help conserve these vital systems using micro-fragmentation. This has been the method of choice to propagate branching corals for many years. Originally widespread in the aquarium hobby to produce and trade live Pacific corals, this method has also proven successful in restoring damaged reefs.
