Did you ever dream of becoming a marine biologist? The Reef Check EcoDiver program combines education with action to give scuba diver volunteers a unique experience while taking an active role in conserving the world’s reefs. The EcoDiver program allows participants the rare opportunity to work with teams of scientists around the globe to combat the crises affecting our reefs today. The world’s reefs are changing fast, and it is up to us to ensure that reefs are around for future generations.
How can you help? Simple. Enroll in a 3-day EcoDiver certification course that qualifies you to help our teams to monitor reefs worldwide.
With teams around the world, there are a multitude of reefs to survey at nearly every diving destination worldwide. Experienced divers may also wish to participate in or take part in one of our signature Reef Check EcoExpeditions.
Using its globally standardized scientific protocol, the Reef Check EcoDiver program collects valuable data to establish the status of coral reefs worldwide. The data are analyzed and used locally by marine park managers, nationally by fisheries and environment managers, and internationally by organizations, including United Nations agencies, to help better track and care for coral reefs.
