Reef Check Iran Holds Student Workshop

\"\"By Mohammad Ghavasi, Reef Check Iran

Mohammad Ghavasi of Reef Check Iran recently held a workshop for marine biology students at Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran. Entitled “Introduction to Diving & Underwater World”, the workshop introduced Reef Check to the participants and explained how they can act to help save our coral reefs. As a result, many new volunteers were found who will be able to participate in future activities.

The first Reef Check brochure published in Persian was given to the participants; donors willing to assist with the publication of a second brochure are currently needed.

Thank you to Mr. R. Bahmai and Miss S. Alassi, who assisted with the lecture, as well as Mr. A. Bitaab and his wife Mrs. S. Mosafer who held the workshop.
