Marine conservation has been at the heart of our Koh Tao dive school since it was started over 22 years ago. The New Heaven Reef Conservation Program (NHRCP) was founded at our dive school in 2007 to teach divers about coral reef ecology, research, and restoration. We believe that the people most closely connected to the reef should be the ones that care for it, and so are trying to get more and more divers involved in marine education and conservation by offering courses and certifications through Conservation Diver. Through various ongoing marine conservation projects and ocean monitoring studies we engage in the many facets of marine conservation that Thailand has to offer.
Through Conservation Diver Courses, students gain hand-on experience in coral reef ecology, research, protection, and restoration. Our courses run Monday through Friday, from 9:30 am until about 3:30pm. Generally the morning starts with a lecture and PowerPoint on the day’s topic, and then we prepare the equipment and materials for the afternoon dive. Next the team heads out to the sea to work on the day’s project, generally with one long dive of about 60-120 minutes. After the dive we spend a short time discussing the topics learned or entering the data collected.
