Our Diver Program for dive facilities brings together the concepts of reef restoration, business development and education... all through SCUBA!
What?: Our Diver Program is made up of the 2 day, 4 dive Restoration Diver course & its accompanying 1 day, 2 dive Conservation Diver course. They are fun, hands-on certifications developed by Reef Guru for dive facilities worldwide to offer to divers. Divers learn about corals, what they are, why they are important, what we can do to protect them, and get awesome hands-on experience in coral restoration at the dive facility's small-scale restoration project.
Why?: Coral reefs are facing a lot of human-induced problems and they need some extra care & attention to help them pull through. Reef Guru believe that a grass-roots approach involving dive facilities, public education, engagement & man-power through recreational-diver certification programs is one of the puzzle pieces to assisting corals in their struggles. Imagine if every dive facility in the world undertook a reef restoration program - we would be providing the reefs with much needed help to overcome the pressures that they currently face.
Who?: Our vision is for all dive facilities near coral reefs to run & manage their own small-scale restoration project, maintained by an army of 'Restoration Divers'.
How?: Dive centres/organisations can join Reef Guru by becoming a Partner Facility and gain access to our carefully created course materials. We teach your instructors all the skills and base knowledge needed to carry out coral restoration work and train them in how to teach our courses. If you don't currently have a coral restoration project in place, we can help, support and guide you through the steps involved in setting up and running your own small-scale coral restoration project. All of our training is now online, so no matter where you are in the world it is quick and easy to join us and build Reefs For The Future!
