AWARE Coral Conservation Specialty

The Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course informs divers and non-divers about the plight of the world’s coral reefs.



The course describes how coral reefs function and why they are so important. It also reviews why many reefs are in serious trouble and what individuals can do to prevent further decline. Most divers, snorkelers and environmental enthusiasts have already visited or plan to visit a coral reef. The Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course provides the knowledge base for proper interaction while touring a reef.
